Wayne Frost, known in the hip hop world as Frosty Freeze, died April 3 in New York City. He was 44 years years old.
For decades, Frost had been a member of the seminal break dance troupe Rock Steady Crew, which formed in the Bronx in 1977. People unfamiliar with hip hop instead may remember him as one of the break dancers whose routine became part of the penultimate performance for Jennifer Beals’ character in the 1983 film Flashdance.
More details about Frost’s life and performances are available in a New York Times obituary.
