Ness Alejandro Martinez is one of the most innovative young Choreographers on the scene now.  Ness Martinez began dancing at the age of 3 at a community center in the Bronx. He began his professional training at the age of 10, with Anthony Rodriguez & La Santa Luz Dance Company and over the years, working with Anthony in and out of The Door www.thedoor.org within this great supportive space to develop his craft. Also during the early stages of his career, he began performing at Madison Square Garden as a Knick City Kid. He was then accepted into Talent Unlimited High School and continued strengthen his technique and training in Ballet, Modern, and contemporary styles, and began dancing with choreographer David Gamboa and went on to place within the top 10 at World HipHop competition at Disney World. He is currently a part of the Urban Dance League and is focusing on building his choreography, using tools he has learned from all of his training.

This BurnItUp choreography was created by Ness after he started teaching it in different studios, a few days after its release.  Some of the students began feeling discouraged because the choreography was different from their usual style of dancing. Students at the t I Love Dance, a Kpop style based studio in Queens, were up for the challenge and didn't give up. After a 3 week period Ness decided to use each of the students who stuck with him in this journey. To acknowledge their hard work, determination, and Love for dance, this video was his Thank you to them. Sometimes its the #Unbreakable will and determination of the dancer that makes them have what it takes in fierce competition. Ness's previous vimeo upload had over 800+ plays before it was uploaded to youtube to enter in the #JanetJackson #Official #ThatsHowiBurnItUp! #Contest. see link here. https://vimeo.com/144388989
