Bay Area Hip Hop: The Next Generation

If you are all about Bay Area hip hop and you want to see what’s coming next on the dance front, take a look at Alex Flores and Marthy Galimba (dance names: Prince Ali and Marthy McFlyy).  Or maybe you just want to see some amazingly athletic dance moves. Either way, you won’t go wrong with these guys.

They recently became official members of the Renegade Rockers, a legendary Bay Area Dance crew founded in 1983.  The Renegades love to test themselves in what they call “battles,” where two dancers face off against each other and judges from the community decide who comes out on top.

Both Alex and Marthy draw inspiration from Renegade Rocker legend Omar Delgado (Dance Name: Roxrite).  Omar is a local icon who has won over 82 dance competitions and is also currently a member of Red Bull BC One All Stars, a crew of 10 internationally renowned hip hop dancers.

Despite their strong physical personas, Alex and Marthy are actually couple of introverts who grew up in rough neighborhoods around a lot of gang violence. Dance became their outlet to release frustration, come to terms with their experiences, and make something good of it all.
