Anthony Denaro, M.F.A, aka YNOT, explores the design, sustainability, history, and community of hip hop. Through a futurist lens, YNOT’s work manifests in dance, typography, music, and architecture.

Senior Vice President of the legendary Rock Steady Crew, YNOT’s reputation in the dance world precedes him. As a B-boy, he’s traveled the world extensively judging battles, teaching workshops, and building cultural awareness.

In YNOT’s vision of the sustainability of hip hop, teaching and mentorship are paramount. Currently, his classes can be found on a workshop basis internationally, as well as online and in person through University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Arizona State University, where he teaches Breaking Technique and Stylized Lettering.
