Guam - 22-year-old Joseph S. Duenas, Jr. (aka, "Lil' B-Dash"), is making his mark on MTV's hit show America's Best Dance Crew.  Currently in its sixth season, the crew Street Kingdom is a force to be reckoned with, bringing krumpin' to the forefront and Duenas is part of that force.

"Baby Joe" what many of his close family calls him was born and raised in Oceanside, California to parents Joseph, Sr. and his mother Chiaki Castro. When Duenas was five years old, he attended kindergarten at Price Elementary School while staying with his aunt and godmother Eva and uncle James Cruz. Right now he is residing in Compton, California and is in isolation as all the dance crews participating in this season's ABDC are during filming.

His aunt/godmother Eva says that what makes his story even more special is that all the dance members of Street Kingdom are very religious.  Now if you watched the season premiere, they are very active with their church and read The Bible daily.  Also, a very popular member of their group is Tight Eyes who was given a standing ovation due to the fact that he is the creator of the crump dance and was featured in the movie Rise.

"Baby Joe" not only has the love and support of his family-from his sisters Justina and Dolores, his grandparents Dolores and Frank Rivera from Sinajana and Jose and Teresita Duenas from Ordot but he has this island behind him all the way.
