Remember when Ill-Abilities Crew came to Kings College in London, Ontario for a free show and inspirational presentation last November 2012? If not then here’s a video of Ill Abilities jamming with local crews Ill at Will, Space Invaderz, and Air Borne Precautions (the dancing starts around the 3:00 mark):

Well now that your memory has been refreshed I’m excited to tell you that Luca Patuelli (aka Lazylegz of Ill Abilities) will be doing his thing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, December 16th! So be sure to set your DVR, PVR, or even VCR if you’re old school; or better yet just tune in live. Also, #NoExcusesNoLimits is the hashtag to use for your social media.
Here’s the word from EllenTV.com:
Making more moves on the stage, Canadian b-boy LUCA “LAZYLEGZ” PATUELLI dances for Ellen! Luca doesn’t let anything stop him from dancing; not a muscular disorder, not the rain or cold, not even gravity. He’ll walk his stunning walk for Ellen, and it will not only be entertaining, it will be inspiring for all.
The following are some select excerpts from Lazylegz’ bio on his website:
Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli was born on July 28, 1984 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He was born with Arthrogryposis (multiplex congenita), a rare disorder that is explained by limited joint movement and poor muscle growth.
In 1999, at the age of 15, Luca discovered “B-boying” also known as Breakdancing. Although quite challenging at first, he began to learn moves and modified them to create his own unique style that incorporates both extreme upper body strength and the use of crutches. “Lazylegz” was born.
Lazylegz has worked with world-renowned artists such as Kanye West, Talib Kweli, K-OS, the Nappy Roots, Luther Brown, and many more. He has made appearances in the movies Kickin’ It Old Skool and Sur le rhythme. He was also featured on several international media sources including NBC Today Show, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, Much Music, MBC Korea, NTV Japan, CBC, TF-1 France, and many more. In Montreal, Lazylegz has actively organized many internationally known breakdance events, such as Pro-Am, City vs. City (Team Montreal), & No Limits. In 2010, Lazylegz and Illmask performed in the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics Opening Ceremonies starring in the “One inspires all” segment, where a world record was broken for the biggest flash mob dance.
