About the crew:

Absolute Zero (AZero) is Cornell University's premiere breakdance crew. Founded in 1997 out of a common interest for hip hop culture, feeling the beat, and making people go crazy and shout nonsense words, the crew has continued to promote an interest in bboying across the Cornell campus and in the greater Ithaca community.

Absolute Zero is comprised of both undergraduate and graduate students, and for some reason, a lot of us happen to be students with engineering or natural science majors. In that way, we commit ourselves to dispelling the stereotype that engineers are nerds... even though a lot us do enjoy playing video games and watching anime. Don't tell anyone though. Please.

Sometimes, when we're really itching to dance (almost always) and when the weather is nice (almost never), you can see us breaking outside on Ho Plaza or in Collegetown. We would break outside like that more often, but our boom-box (Kaboom) is ghettofabulous and louder than a really big cannon, which can be disruptive for classes in session.


You can usually find us sessioning four times a week at the following places:


Willard Straight Hall, Memorial room

9:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Willard Straight Hall, 5th floor dance studio

9:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Willard Straight Hall, 5th floor dance studio

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Helen Newman Hall, Dance Studio

9:20 PM - 12:00 PM

Because there are so many student organizations at Cornell, it's possible (though unlikely) for us to run into scheduling conflicts with these rooms. So if you show up at any of the above times and don't see us... oops.

Bboy Anson (Co-President)

Name: Anson Lin

Class: 2010

I like learning different styles of dance like locking and house. I'm from Seattle even though I go to school in New York and so I like to keep that West Coast flavor in my style. Creativity and originality comes from being true to yourself.

Bboy Anthony Wang (Co-President)

I'm from California. I like bboying. Though powermoves are my favorite, I also like to learn different styles and mess around. I also enjoy playing piano, sleeping, and studying biology. I love God and hope to share his love with the rest of the world.
