Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli
Luca Patuelli is a Canadian breakdancer born with arthrogryposis, a rare disorder involving limited joint movement and poor muscle growth, which has resulted in a total of 16 surgeries on his spine. At 15, Luca fell in love with b-boying and began representing Canada in top-level international events. He’s performed and competed all over North America, and in 2007, put together “ill-abilities” an international crew of the best “ill-abled” dancers from across the globe. He’s appeared on ‘Ellen’, performed alongside Kanye West, and was invited to perform at the Vancouver 2010 paralympic opening ceremony. He teaches dance to children with disabilities and continually spreads the message of “no excuses, no limits”.
