Adolfo Gutierrez Quiñones or Adolfo Gordon Quiñones  (born May 11, 1955), known professionally as Shabba-Doo is an American actor, dancer, and choreographer of Ethiopian and Puerto Rican/American descent.  Quiñones is perhaps best known for his role as Orlando "Ozone" in the 1984 breakdancing film Breakin' and its sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Quiñones was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois; his father was Puerto Rican, and his mother was Ethiopian. His mother raised him as a single parent from the age of three. He has a younger sister, Fawn Quiñones, who was also a dancer, and frequently featured on the musical variety television program Soul Train.

As Punking spread to the straight dance community   Shabba Doo began to take part and introduce it part of his own style throughout performance and shows.

As a founding member of The Original Lockers along with Don "Campbellock" Campbell, Fred "Rerun" Berry and Toni Basil, Quiñones became one of the founders of the dance style commonly known as locking. His best-known role was as Ozone in the 1984 hit cult film, Breakin', as well as in its sequel, Breakin' 2.
