Having won several international locking contests, including the Bboy Summit, Freestyle Session, Bust-A-Move and Battle of the Year, Marc has proven himself a worthy adversary on the international scene and continues to train and compete. He is constantly challenging himself to evolve, and his style is known for a precision and musicality that only comes from dedicated training and a passion for The Funk. Since relocating to Montreal, a hotbed for dancers and music, Marc has appeared at various events, including opening for the famous rapper Talib Kweli and performing at several Adidas fashion shows. A real patron of dance, Marc has organized various events for the Montreal and Toronto dance community, including the Locking 4 Life Canada Tour, Steel City Cyphurs, Family Affair and The Hippest Trip, as well as weekly funk nights in several Montreal clubs.
