Meet the Presenter

Meet Aubrey Moore Crawford, known by many as the Legendary Kassandra Ebony. The 26-year-old Brooklyn native's ballroom journey began at the age of 16 after graduating from Washington Irving High School. His consistent voguing, battling, and commentating state-to-state led to winning numerous Of-The-Year (OTY) Awards, over $10,000 in cash prizes within a 6-year time span, and being deemed Legendary in the ballroom scene. Kassandra’s love and passion for vogue has led to work Qween Beat Productions, Microsoft Airlift, Hood By Air, Jennifer Hudson, Bob Sinclair, Y-3, and Gypsy Sport. In his spare time, Kassandra gives back to the community by remaining active and teaching free vogue classes.
