Hip-Hop dancer/choreographer Ana "Rokafella" Garcia began street performing with such crews such as The Transformers, The Breeze Team, and the New York City Float Committee. In '94 she ran into Kwikstep who urged her to audition for GhettOriginal- a Hip-Hop dance company. She was cast and became further exposed to the "old school" dance technique. After experiencing international appreciation for Hip-Hop, she decided to offer classes back home to prevent it's fading away. She has taught workshops at NYU and Howard as well as neighborhood high schools and community centers. The nonprofit company she co founded with her husband, "Full Circle Prod", serves the community with educational performances and multimedia urban-themed performances. They presented "Soular Power'd" on Broadway's New Victory Theater which received rave reviews, and was their Hip-Hop theater directorial debut. She is presently producing a documentary based on the challenging lifestyles of female break dancers featuring b girls from all over the world. She represents the positive image of a woman confident in both her Puerto Rican and Hip-Hop cultures. She believes this culture was born to help urban youth get through the ups and downs of life with something to hold on to.
