About Gabriel Jaochico, Bboy Wicket:
In 1991, Gabriel “Wicket” Jaochico began his journey into hip hop culture by attending local DJ, street dance and graffiti art showcases in San Francisco. After watching amazing dance groups electrify the crowd, Wicket was intrigued by the b-boys. He practiced in his garage with friends and studied videos of the bboys religiously, eventually drawing the attention of original Renegade Rockers member, Aki. After securing an invitation to a Renegades practice at SFSU, Wicket and his friends went on to become official Renegade Rockers crew members.
Wicket went on to perform in stage theater production “Madhattan” at the New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, dancing alongside legendary street dancers such as the Rock Steady Crew and Electric Boogaloos. Performing every night for 12 months with such influential castmates honed Wicket’s powermoves, footwork and finesse, developing his own signature style.
Countless shows, competitions, and performances later, Wicket entered the world of Choreography, earning work with A-list artists including Will Smith, Chris Brown, LL Cool J,Omarion, and Christina Aguilera.
In 2005, the Rock Steady Crew presented Wicket the ”Spy Award” which represents the highest ideals of B-boy culture.
After 20 years of bboyin, Wicket still enjoys teaching workshops, judging (and occasionally entering) competitions. Most recently, Wicket won the 40+ Battle at Freestyle Session in San Diego. After rising from the sidelines and growing to become one of the most influential B-boys in the world, Wicket honors his responsibility by teaching, coaching, and continuing the tradition of breakdance culture.
