Born & raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Julian G. Mendez started dancing around 10 years old, beginning with Spanish ballroom dance, primarily lessons from his parents, who are the first generation in their Puerto Rican family born in the United States. Around the age of 12, Julian’s interest in hip hop dance began.  At 14, Julian’s curiosity in the B-boy lifestyle (break dancing) began. After Julian’s initial start in Spanish dance, he then branched out as a “popper” and only when he began to immerse himself more into choreography, he began to fuse the “popping” and break dancing together.  As he started to learn more about the B-boy world, he started to concentrate on the B-boy aspect more fully.

His time with the Scream Team has allowed to me travel to many places in the United States and out of the country, to China. Dancing has allowed him to teach, explore, and showcase his talents to an abundant amount of people.  A lot of the members of the Scream Team are friends prior to me joining the Team, and those friends have kept him grounded those times when the Team was put on a high pedestal and most of them looked at it as just doing what we loved as opposed to a job.  The Scream Team has helped Julian grow, has given him a perception on how things are done in the entertainment business.

Through Julian’s career with the Cleveland Cavaliers & beyond, he’s helped to educate underprivileged youth through local dance studios & school programs about what dance, hip hop, and B-boying is all about.  Julian is a dancer who has been self-taught in the presence of friends & very rarely in a studio setting.  

Dance helped Julian channel the negativity in his life into something positive.

His overall goal for the next couple years is to help educate, to help people understand what it is to be a dancer, to understand hip hop culture, and that one can literally take anything negative in life and turn it over to a positive aspect, and channel it into dance.  

“My best advice is for the people who work as hard as they can… just keep going, always look for something to strive for. While you are sitting here and doing nothing, someone else in the world is doing something.  Someone else is practicing their craft.”
