Mr. Wiggles is a living legend. Born Steffan Clemente in the “Boogie Down” Bronx, the hip-hop dance pioneer has popped, locked, boogalooed, b-boyed and wiggle-walked his way from Beat Street to Sesame Street, and from the Rock Steady Crew to the Electric Boogaloos. He was a featured dancer and choreographer on tours and videos with Missy Elliot, Usher, and Limp Bizkit. Always outspoken about keeping hip-hop true to its roots, Wiggles was one of the first to call out the dance contest show So You Think You Can Dance when two contestants stole choreography from hip-hop masters Les Twins. He’s currently on a knowledge and training tour, with only one stop in S.F. The class will focus on building a good foundation in popping, hip-hop, and toprocking, while covering cultural concepts like battling, street cred, and maintaining your hustle. Bring your kneepads and come ready to sweat. As Mr. Wiggles says, “Practice hard. It’s no joke.”

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
