The AmountBoyz are the premiere dance group of the 21st century, successors to the world famous “RockSteady Crew” as not only a ground breaking and well respected group in New York City, but also throughout the entertainment industry. Years before the commercial inception of the “dance crew” and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew TV series, The Amount Boyz were regularly featured on National Television via BET’s 106 and Park.
The group was initially formed in New York City in 1996 at Fiorello H. La Guardia high school, " The Fame School," and continued to expand from there. Their name "AmountBoyz" represents the collective diversity and varying degrees of talent that each member brings to the stage. The group’s members all have varying backgrounds of dance training, which include but not limited to the National Dance Institute School of American Ballet.
Their big break came from industry renowned choreographer Laurieann Gibson. At the time she was Sean “P.Diddy” Combs personal choreographer and saw the AmountBoyz as a perfect fit for his then artist, Jerome. Since then the group has gone on to work with the industry’s biggest and best, from the stage to the big screen.
Artist credits include : Madonna, Justin Bieber,Sade, Omarion, Keyshia Cole, Ryan Leslie, Toni Braxton, Jay- Z, P.Diddy, Black Eye Peas, etc.

The over goal and intent of the group is to continue training and to inspire others in the dance community to work hard for what they believe in.
