Omar "RoxRite" Delgado Macias (born April 6, 1982) is an award-winning competitive b-boy from San Diego, California. As of November 2014, he has won 85 titles[5] including the UK B-Boy Championships (2005),[6] R16 (2009),[7] Red Bull BC One (2011)[8][9] and Freestyle Session (2013).[10][note 1]

RoxRite was born in Guadalajara, Mexico[8] and raised in Windsor, California.[11] His family moved to the United States when he was six years old,[12] but he wasn't introduced to breaking until he was 12.[12] Although he was born in Mexico, RoxRite represents the U.S. in competition because the U.S. is where he was raised and where he learned breaking.[12] He won his first international b-boy title in France in 2003.[5]

His style of b-boying led to the name 'Roxrite,' a term referring to how he always 'rocked right'. Roxrite is one of three dancers from the US to have claimed the Red Bull BC One World Championship title.[13]

RoxRite appeared in a documentary about breaking called Turn It Loose (2010)[12] and in two seasons of the Red Bull-produced online reality series Break'n Reality (2012 and 2014).[8][9] In 2013, he was on the selection committee for the B-Boy Scholarship Fund sponsored by TheBBoySpot.com.[14] In 2015, he co-directed an online series with b-boy Ali "Lilou" Ramdani called Crew Code.[15] He is a member of four b-boy crews: Renegades, Squadron, Break Disciples, and Red Bull BC One All-Stars.[16][17]
