Brian “Hannibal” Newby was born and raised in North Philadelphia. He grew up in a neighborhood where he was exposed to many block parties and house parties. Being in this environment led to his first attraction towards dance. He started popping in 1998 after he began watching and mimicking his mother dance. Six years later Hannibal started breaking and also became an influence and teacher to others around him. He was quickly recognized as a dancer with tremendous talent and style. He started his own movement, 360 Flava, where he strived to teach and share the knowledge and full aspect of Hip-Hop. Along with entering and winning b-boy battles, he stepped foot into the commercial business. He danced promotionally for BET and Adidas to name a few. Hannibal was personally sought out and asked to join Rennie Harris Puremovement, allowing him to fully enter the theater world. With the company he has performed at numerous places including Jacob’s Pillow, the San Francisco Hip-Hop Dance Fest, and Apap in New York. His enormous talent has also allowed him to tour internationally to Mexico, Switzerland, and Bolivia where he did work for the U.S. government. With the combination of his talent, knowledge and intelligence, Hannibal has become an outstanding figure in the Hip-Hop community not only in Philadelphia. He is a leader who understands his role and chooses to continue working, learning and inspiring everyday.
