Bio: Ofa has been dancing since his junior year of high school. Ofa and his two best friends started up a dance crew called the The After Hours Crew (AHC). The crew had connections with a dance teacher who allowed the crew to practice after hours to perfect their skills. After the crew got going, they made their way into the dance scene by doing local workshops, small dance gigs, attending battles among other functions.

During this time, Ofa met, now fellow Underground crew member, Tia Aiono. Tia is a coordinator for the Underground Crew, choreographer for the renowned chain Millennium Dance Complex, among many other prominent positions in the dance world. Tia encouraged Ofa to addition for the Underground Crew were he currently resides.

Dancer Quote: I love hip hop that is WILD and RAW! Big, hard-hitting POWER are the things I love in a good set. I've been trained in waacking, popping, krump. I was apart of The Jazz Studios Adult Competition for 1 year. I dance because it's life! It's what I absolutely love. I can't see myself without dance in my life. It's my creative outlet! I wish to inspire. I hope people get that overwhelming feeling I get when I see others going so hard giving it their all and just plain KILLING IT! I hope to one day be a full time dancer! Make a living off of dance! Do shows, backup dance… all that good stuff! I have 10 siblings. I'm half a twin. My first name means love and my last name means chapter. My favorite animal/ spirit animal is the very awesome hippopotamus. I have double jointed fingers. Also, I have inherited my mom's ability to see ghosts!
