Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Shabba Doo is the stage name of Adolfo Quiñones (born May 11, 1955), an American actor, dancer, choreographer, and director. He became one of the founders of the dance style commonly known as locking as a member of The Original Lockers with Toni Basil, Don "Campbellock" Campbell and Fred "Rerun" Berry. Quiñones' most well known role was the role of Ozone in the 1984 hit cult film, Breakin' and its sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.  He appeared in the film Rave - Dancing to a Different Beat, which he also directed.

Quiñones has made guest appearances on TV shows, including The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, Married... with Children, Miami Vice, What's Happening!!, Saturday Night Live and Lawrence Leung's Choose Your Own Adventure.

Besides his acting and dancing work in film and television, he has served as a choreographer to many singers such as Lionel Richie, Madonna, and Luther Vandross. He was a primary dancer and main choreographer for Madonna's Who's That Girl  Tour in 1987.  Presently he serves as choreographer for Jamie Kennedy's new MTV sitcom, Blowin' Up. He choreographed Three Six Mafia's performance on the 78th Academy Awards. The group won the Oscar for best original song for their song "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp".

Quiñones (along with his Breakin' co-star Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers and other dancers from the film) is prominently featured in the music video for Chaka Khan's 1984 song "I Feel for You".
