Manuel “Aztlan” Guerrero began dancing in 1997. He was introduced to the dance in his hometown of Santa Ana, California . By the age of 13 he was a part of larger groups “I started breaking with guys from my neighborhood and then there was a place called Koo’s cafe where I met other bboys already in the scene way before.” He began doing performances and attending local bboy jams. In his late teens, he began to attending big competition, around the U.S and in southern California
Aztlan was introduced to the commercial aspect of the dance scene by Bboy Abu (RIP) “He showed me how I could capitalize of my talent and to believe in my self he also got me my first paid gig at a time when I was new to the scene at a time where I thought I could never make a living of breaking I just thought It was something I would do as long as I could when I could “. He began performing again alongside artists such as Cypress Hill, Dilated Peoples, and appearing in pilots, commercials, TV spots and newspapers such as the LA Times, OC Weekly and various others. Aztlan has also been involved in the community by teaching Bboys in El Centro as well as teaching at the National Dance Academy.
