Iconic Boyz

The Iconic Boyz are the youngest dancers to ever compete on “America’s Best Dance Crew" (MTV). Drawing inspiration from the likes of Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber, this "boy band of dance" plans to impress the crowd with a unique style of hip-hop and street jazz.


They were founded in 2006. Often referred to as “the boy band of dance”, the 15 member crew is living proof that young dreams can become a reality- especially for millennial males on a quest to learn how to dance. With a lifestyle fueled by endurance, courage and self-confidence, this remarkable teen hip hop and street jazz dance crew reveal that dancing at a young age can in fact, be iconic.
