Challenging the range of what hip-hop dance can be, Raphael Xavier will continue ADF in Cleveland with a performance unlike any we've had before! An Award-winning artist originally from Wilmington, Delaware; Raphael Xavier is a Hip-Hop dancer and Breaking practitioner that has been honing his craft since 1983. A self-described "Innovative Movement Conceptualist", Xavier creates new ways to expand the vocabulary of the dance form and how it fits onto an aging body. He draws not only upon the culture but also his equally important visual background as a Hip Hop magazine photographer and musical artist.
