Agatron grew up in Portland, OR & met a popper named Steve when she was 17 in 2002. Living in Vancouver, BC & Portland she didn't find many poppers at the time.

She moved to California in 2006 and started hanging out with poppers. In 2009 she was spotted by Plik Plok at a Mighty 4 event and joined his Richmond Robotting/Strutting crew called The Robonati. Agatron became introduced deeper into Bay Area's Boogaloo, Robotting, & Strutting history and its people learning from Pop Tart, Plik Plok, Granny Robotroid, Pennywise, and many others who were familiar with original 1970's African American North Bay Styles (Oakland, Richmond, San Francisco).

She traded with the OG's of BRS (Boogaloo, Robotting, Strutting Arts Alliance) graphic design work for knowledge & was eventually certified to teach Strutting by BRS in 2013.

Besides organizing many all female battles & showcases since 2010 and helping to promote and produce BRS events, Agatron also started IRON LOTUS Street Dance Company in February 2015 in which she trains women (already interested in popping) strutting for free | www.ironlotus.dance

She continues to learn and share knowledge and comes to Portland with the intention of spreading the history, love, curiosity, and inspiration for Strutting to the Pacific Northwest.
