Richard "Crazy Legs" Colón, a 24-year veteran of Hip-Hop culture, is one of the original members of the Rock Steady Crew and Ghettoriginal Productions.

Credits include many of the first Hip-Hop tours in the early 80's, which set the foundation for what the culture has become. He has been featured in such films as Flashdance, Beat Street, Wild Style and Style Wars as well as various television programs, commercials for Coke and Sprite, and music videos.

He participated in the Peabody Award-winning documentary "Dance in America: Everybody Dance Now" and in the Great Performances 20th Anniversary Special. As a member of the Rock Steady Crew, he has performed in a tribute to the Nicholas Brothers at the Kennedy Center Honors, the Royal Variety Performance for Queen Elizabeth II, the Boston Ballet Gala, and in the Lincoln Center Serious Fun! series. He won the 1991 Bessie Award for Choreography and the 1994 Hip-Hop Pioneer Award from The Source magazine.

Other career highlights include starring in the Off-Broadway play Jam On the Groove, working with Savion Glover, and teaching John Leguizamo to b.boy (breakdance) for his Tony Award-nominated play Freak. He has also choreographed music videos for Wyclef Jean (which was nominated for an MTV Best Choreography Award) and Moby.

Crazy Legs and some of the other members of Rock Steady Crew were the first B.boys to perform at Carnegie Hall on Jan 19, 2001. Along with the Rock Steady Crew, Crazy Legs has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Japan, Australia, South America and Europe. Currently he volunteers by teaching the art of b.boying and participates in several community outreach programs and workshops. It was his dance program at the Point C.D.C. for young people in the South Bronx, which garnered him the New Yorker of the Week Award from New York 1 News.

Crazy Legs hosts and organizes the annual Rock Steady Anniversary, a monumental community event that honors deceased members of the crew and celebrates Hip-Hop culture both past and present. The Rock Steady Anniversary attracts DJ's, b.boys/b.girls, em cee's, writers and thousands of Hip-Hop supporters from all around the world.

Crazy Legs is the president of the newly-formed Backspin Productions, a record label whose mission is to bring new life to the dance world by introducing new and original music to the next generation of b.boys/girls, as well as to the rest of the Hip-Hop community. Crazy Legs' success is a testament to the longevity of Hip-Hop culture.
