The late King of Pop Michael Jackson’s longtime breakdancing teacher Bruno ‘Pop N Taco’ Falcon passed away, age 58, from natural causes at his Long Beach home on Saturday.

‘It is with sadness and emotion that I announce Bruno passed away yesterday,’ his official Facebook account announced.

‘Bruno was an incredible, kind and generous man. He always had that smile that lights up our hearts every moment. A unique and incredible talent. He will forever be the greatest dancer of history, with Michael Jackson. We are all thinking of Bruno’s family and sending them all our love. Bruno “Pop N’ Taco” Falcon is the king.’

The East LA native’s sister Diana Wolgamott told TMZ on Sunday that she believes he may have died from a possible heart attack and no autopsy will be conducted.

Bruno taught the 13-time Grammy winner popping, waving, gliding, and animation techniques over their 16 years of working together in Captain EO (1986), Moonwalker (1988), and his 69-date Dangerous Tour (1992-93).

Falcon also danced in music videos for Lionel Richie’s All Night Long, Chaka Khan’s I Feel For You, and Klymaxx’s Meeting in the Ladies Room – which was hilariously parodied by Saturday Night Live in 2019.
