Drew Dollaz is a pioneer of flexing, a Brooklyn-based genre of street dance also referred to as bone breaking, which is characterized by rhythmic contortionist movements. A self-taught dancer, Dollaz is known for blending flexing with other styles including ballet to create a transcendent hybrid of movement artistry.
Dollaz has performed and partnered with a broad range of artists and brands, including Madonna, Rihanna, Skrillex, Red Bull, Sony, Aloft Hotels, and Billboard. His performances on Madonna’s MDNA tour in 2012 marked the first time flexing appeared on the world stage. Next Level Squad, a New York City collective of flexing dancers in which Dollaz performs and choreographs, has garnered more than a million views on YouTube and has been featured on World of Dance, The Breakin’ Convention, and America’s Got Talent. He recently collaborated with composer Daniel Bernard Roumain and spoken word artist BAMUTHI on The Just and The Blind, commissioned by Carnegie Hall, which premiered to a sold out audience at Carnegie in March 2019. Dollaz looks forward to the release of his acting debut in a feature length film.
Arts education and youth empowerment are core tenets of Dollaz’ work and he currently mentors young dancers and teaches internationally.
