The Teacher

Fides “Anna Banana Freeze” Mabanta is a Filipino-American b-girl and teaching artist from the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle, WA. She is the founder/instructor of Mini BREAKS dance and one of the only two women in the world-renown, award-winning breaking crew, Massive Monkees, serving as a performer, leader and sister. ABF is also a proud mother to her 11 year-old daughter Alaina, and supports her family through her full-time dance hustle. Her mission in life is to teach others – especially young people, to discover their identity, build up their confidence and become empowered to express themselves, as she herself has learned to do through her own experience with hip-hop.
