Biography

Adolfo “Shabba-Doo Quiñones


Adolfo “Shabba-Doo” Quiñones is an award-winning Choreographer/Director who has amassed an impressive 30 plus years of experience in the entertainment industry. Shabba-Doo has worked extensively in creative and executive production capacities for highly successful feature films, television shows, major concert tours, and Broadway musical theater productions. In the early 1970’s, Shabba-Doo, danced his way into a lucrative professional career, making his initial mark as a founding member of the legendary street-dance troupe, The Lockers, forefathers of contemporary urban dance (Hip-Hop). After several successful years with the fabled troupe, Shabba-Doo embarked on a stand-out solo career, starring in and choreographing a string of high-profile internationally televised specials and feature films, including: Breakin’ (Cannon/MGM); Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (Cannon/Tri-Star Pictures); Lambada…Set The Night On Fire (Warner Bros.); and The Big Show (NBC).

The success of his trend-setting, box-office smashes impelled the authoritative Dance Magazine to dub Shabba-Doo “Hip-Hop’s first matinee idol.” This distinguished recognition of his visionary dance talents, led to collaborative working relationships with a wide-range of superstars such as Madonna, Bette Midler, Michael Jackson, Lionel Ritchie, Bill Cosby and even ole blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra!

Shabba-Doo’s collaboration with award winning stage director Ron Link on Stand Up Tragedy, the celebrated musical presented by the Mark Taper Forum, led the Los Angeles Theater Critics Association to bestow on him the prestigious Drama Critics Circle Award. To broaden his artistic scope, he attended the world-renowned American Film Institute as a Directing Fellow. Upon his subsequent graduation, he secured the financing, co-wrote, choreographed, and made his directorial debut with the independent feature film Rave…Dancing to a Different Beat, distributed by New Line Cinema.

Shabba-Doo formed and heads Cognitive Media LLC, a California based corporation that integrates new media technologies and practices with traditional filmmaking methods to efficiently produce visually stimulating entertainment and marketing packages that will enlighten a global audience. In addition to inter-media production activities, Cognitive Media offers specialized theater art workshops, and related seminars. Shabba-Doo has recently conducted master classes and performed in Poland, in Russia for HHI-Russia, in Rome, London and Wales and will be conducting master classes in Sweden, Rome and the UK again this fall. Additionally, a Street Dance Instructor Certification Program is offered to qualified dancers. This 12 week master program certifies teachers in Lockin’ 5.0 and Waackin’.

The ever-evolving Shabba-Doo has set his sights on new horizons. He has several projects currently in development including a reality-dance competition television series and “Planet Dance,” a reality series focused on global dance. Shabba-Doo’s recent choreography projects include the Yari Film Group production "Kickin' It Old Skool," starring Jamie Kennedy, now on DVD, and a music video for rising star J McCoy. Shabba-Doo is currently writing his memoirs, Soul Dancer, which will look at the history of Hip Hop through the lens of his career. Shabba-Doo accepts the tough challenge of multiple production roles to ensure the flow, vision, and quality his fans the world over has come to expect.
