We will have updates and such as we get closer.  I wanted to share one of our guest judges though, as he's coming up from LA and honestly, couldn't be more excited!!

GREG Bad Newz Aldana 

He’s the first Latin Krumper in North America, travelling from Los Angeles and he will be the “All styles” judge for BATTLEZONE this season with a special “krump” workshop on February 9th.

 Greg “Bad Newz” Aldana was born in East LA where he was birthed into the Krump world in 2003.  Throughout his marvelous journey he was given the opportunity to be a part of the world-renowned Krump crew the “Krump Kings”, with many well recognized Krumpers such as Big Ryat, Lil C, Miss Prissy, Mijo and he has been around the world & back sharing culture, knowledge and passion for Krump.  This gradually lead to performing with Top Artists like ‪Busta Rhymes, ‪Pussycat Dolls, Cassidy & ‪Fifth Harmony. He founded the “818 Session” which was just the beginning of his influence and contribution.

Greg “Bad Newz” started cutting hair at the age of 18, his ambitions lead him to owning his own Barbershop, “Barbershop Newz”. Providing a space for clean hair-cuts, free dance sessions, creative projects & events. As well as a home for the “Newz Fam”[First Hispanic Krump Fam] to grow alongside other Krumpers & dancers of all styles.

With his passion & perseverance he went on to winning battles at World Of Dance in both Krump & the All styles battle. Also Took the win at Hip Hop international 2018.  His most recent work is not only dancing but also modeling for Banana republic holiday campaign 2019.

“Have fun and respect the dance game. But keep it old school and remember it’s still a battle”.

Check out the link below to see him doing his thing.  CANNOT wait to have him up here
