Peace, my name is Jeremy Ives Viray better known as B-Boy “Icey Ives,” I am a Filipino American born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. I was introduced to this art form known as Breaking at a local recreational center in 2007. Ever since then, my love and passion grew for Breaking. I have traveled to over 10 states and 13 countries as a world-renowned breaking competitor. I am a Redbull-sponsored dancer and am very blessed to represent Alaska. When I am not traveling for dance competitions, I give back to my local community by teaching young Alaskan dancers in hopes of inspiring and motivating individuals to help evolve their craft. I also lecture at Universities and High Schools to speak about my story and the perspectives I have experienced with my journey in Hip-Hop. As a true student of Hip-Hop culture and life in general, I hope to leave my mark knowing that I did not only do this for myself but family, culture, and my hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. @bboyives | www.iceyives.com

Hello, my name is Diana Reyes. I am a Salvadoran American born in Kodiak Island but raised in Anchorage. I was introduced to dance as a freshman in High School. I trained and learned various dance styles through the amazing East High Dance Contempo Program. After high school, I continued to train and evolve my craft by entering local competitions and attending classes out of state. I have won multiple all-style competitions within this community and have been traveling out of state to further my experience in competing in the all-style category. In the community, I work with the East High Dance Contempo Program as the assistant director. I enjoy teaching and creating choreography and have been in that position for the past seven years. I also enjoy house dancing and a goal of mine is to provide accurate house history and foundation to our dance community. Aside from dancing, I am a Registered Nurse. Dance has changed my life and I hope to inspire many local dancers to reach for the stars. @y_dianareyes

Greetings and blessings! My given name is Jermine Bulaong, also known as B-boy Jermz. I am a first-generation Filipino-American born and raised in the heart of Anchorage, Alaska. I grew up in hip-hop culture with my siblings but did not participate in dance (specifically, breaking) until 2007 at my local rec center. From that day forward, I’ve showcased my passion across the states and overseas; winning some, losing some, and most importantly, gaining experience and knowledge. Behind the scenes, I’ve worked with community leaders helping host competitions and events, hoping to inspire the youth to believe in themselves and their dreams. My mentors have always paid it forward to me, influencing that I do the same and remember that I am always a student. Aside from dance, I’m a barber specialist at AB Hair Studio, keeping my community as fresh as possible! @_jermz.b
