Roxrite, born Omar Delgado, emigrated to the United States from Mexico at the age of six. Seven years later, at the tender age of 12, Omar started dancing after being influenced by local bboys. His first crew, Sub 4, soon became a heavy focus on Omar’s life. His dedication to the dance and his style of bboying gave way to his new name, “Roxrite,” a term referring to how he always “rocked right.”
Citing notable names in the bboying culture such as Ken Swift, Remind, Thunder and Ground Level, Roxrite has taken their influence to shape his own. Now, at age 37, Roxrite is an avid competitor on national and international levels. In ten years of competing, Roxrite has won first place in 106 different competitions. As a fierce and determined dancer, he won nine consecutive solo tournaments an undefeated run that lasted from December 2002 to August 2005 .
Roxrite’s technical ability as a dancer is demonstrated in his stick freeze combinations. His style is extremely strategic. Judges for past tournaments have described him as very well-rounded and complex with his moves. His quick thinking is displayed on battle floors and he highly regards repetition as a symptom of failure.
His affiliations include the crews Renegades, Squadron, and The Break Disciples. His crews have all become heavy support systems as he competes as a solo dancer. While not defined by his West Coast status, Roxrite does take great pride from the dance education he obtains while living in California. His motto, “Skills talk, no hype needed” defines his desire to continually represent the bboy movement the right way. He has no time to pause now.
