As a Brookln native, Caleaf (aka Big Leaf) began developing his craft at an early age. His passion for dance and love for music has kept him in the business for fifteen years. Caleaf is one of the original pioneers to come out of New York’s dance movement in the late ‘80s. He is a member of the famed Moptop Unit and Dance Fusion. Caleaf mixes hip-hop and house to create his own unique dance style.


As an emcee/producer Caleaf, has created music for the Break of Dawn label with the Team Thieves, Moptop in Japan and on Harlem Recordings with DJ Kango. 


Caleaf tours the world teaching the art of house dancing. His goal is to share the culture of the dance through performances and by teaching movement foundation, technique and history from an originator point of view. He is committed to keeping the culture alive for future generations of dancers.
