A born entertainer, William Sanchez aka “BBoy illwill” began his career at 12 years old dancing and making people laugh on the streets of New York City. By the age of 16 he was travelling, performing in theatres and at buskers festivals all over the world and has been doing so for the past 17 years. Much more than just a breakdancer, Will lives to make people laugh and loves the energy and rush of performing in front of a live audience.
Born and raised in the Bronx, the mecca of hip hop, Will started dancing in the local community center “The Point” in 1995 under the guidance of legendary bboy “Crazy Legs”. Ultimately, breaking saved Will’s life and as a young, impressionable Puerto Rican kid, kept him off the streets and out of trouble.
A compilation of everything he has learnt over the last 2 decades of performing, BBoy illwill’s one man show is a mixture of dance, comedy and acrobatics. Watching the show, it is clear just how passionate Will is about performing, entertaining and inspiring the next generation.
