Jeffery “Machine” McCann started dancing at the age of 9 in Sacramento, California. Being on the streets, watching Martial Arts movies, and being a part of Hip Hop in the early 90's, all influenced his dance styles to vary from old forms of rocking to acrobatic tricks. He started his dance career with Show Biz Productions working with the Sacramento Kings and Sacramento Monarchs. That opportunity soon led to Jeff dancing as a professional b-boy around the world in numerous countries including Toronto, Rotterdam, France, Japan, Moscow, Italy, Barcelona and Germany.
Winning first place at Red Bull King of the Ring Toronto 2006, being voted Bboy of the Year 2005 on Freestylesession.com, picked to organize the 2004-2006 IBE USA teams in Rotterdam, performing on the Golden State Warriors, Breaking Squad 2006, and choreographing for Nine Parts of Desire at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in 2006 are only some of his accomplishments. He also originated the concept of ‘Stay on the Court’ while co-promoting it for four years.
When not dancing, he teaches youth with Sisterz of the Underground, an organization that teaches young people the elements of Hip Hop, as well as the Hip Hop values of acceptance, non-violence, creative self-expression, and physical fitness.
In December of 2006, he decided to make the big move to Los Angeles. Since moving down to L.A Machine has been a dancer in “Step Up 3D,” “Step Up II: The Streets,” “Party All Night” – Sean Kingston music video, “How Low” – Ludacris music video, “Forever” – Chris Brown’s music video, “Dance Flick” feature film with the Waynes’ Brothers, The Cheetah Girls National Tour, “Dancing with the Stars” and “CSI: NY.”
He has also appeared in the LXD episode “The Experiments,” on Conan O’Brian with the cast of LXD, featured in Access Hollywood with the cast of ‘Step Up 3D’, and his crew, ‘Killafornia’, won first place at Freestyle Session 13. He also co-founded Hit the Floor Productions and is now Creative Director and Head Choreographer of the company and the main choreographer for their in-house Dance Company, West Bound.
Machine has toured with “Blaze,” a Hip Hop Theatrical performance company based in London that has toured worldwide and choreographed for the successful playwright ‘Alexender the Great ’ which premiered in Tromso, Norway in 2012. Machine has danced for the likes of Bruno Mars and opened for Will I Am at the ‘Teen Choice Awards’. As well as this he has starred in the Season 8 U.S version of 'So you think you can Dance', and featured in the hit teen comedy ‘Glee’. Coupled with the establishment of his own clothing company, ‘NiteSnatchers’, Machine’s most recent works also include being a sponsored performer for the globally recognised beverage brand, Monster Energy.
