Something rare is happening in the world of ballet: At the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., two African-American dancers will be the leads in The Washington Ballet’s production of Swan Lake: Misty Copeland, soloist with American Ballet Theatre, will dance the dual role of Odette and Odile, while Brooklyn Mack of The Washington Ballet will dance Prince Siegfried.
Copeland and Mack have something in common that is also rare for young African-Americans: teachers who saw their potential early on and broke the unwritten rule that all ballet dancers must look alike.

We love all of our fans and supporters and we respect their different opinions.
‘’Larry from Les Twins and Joe Styles from ATeam Las Vegas went one round outside after the “In It To Win It” Battle in Las Vegas a few weeks back. Both dancers give us a great perspective on how each listen to music and translate it through their dance.
Some may call this a battle, but dancers know its an exchange of dance styles, knowledge, and experience. It was only one round, which usually there are more rounds in a raw street exchange, but the importance is the knowledge of musicality and learning of different styles.
No dancer is right or wrong with a mutual respect and understanding of how each defines musicality. Why is this important? Because growing the community in knowledge and understanding of how we all learn music through dance and vice versa helps us further the evolution of styles, community, and the art.
Some of you who see this may only see one perspective, but you need to look at both sides and show respect just as each dancer did at the end.’’

Skitzo vs Lady Tchozen | Final Battle | Cristyle & Les Twins “In It To Win It”
In Atlanta, Georgia, there’s a whole crew of human robots. Rio de Janeiro’s martial artists are dancing in the street. Osaka, Japan, has middle school pupils who perform back-breaking flips. Look close enough at any city across the world and you’ll find original dance styles thriving far away from the media limelight.
When megastar Beyonce needs moves for her next viral video, it’s often the dancers in the streets who lead the way. “Everything starts in the streets,” says Frank Gatson, the legendary choreographer behind Queen Bey’s iconic “Single Ladies” routine - speaking on CNN’s Ones to Watch.
We’ve teamed up with dance video producers YAK Films – who’ve crossed the globe documenting emerging dance cultures – to take you on a tour of the latest moves rippling across the world.

‘’All my life i took so much risk with all the dangerous Moves i was doing…..NOW, finally i feel like the People start to understand the real meaning behind everything.
Its more than just:
I will not forget that i start Breakdance in a time where alot of People were saying that most the Moves that exist now…were IMPOSSIBLE for the People back then.
When i look back now, i just feel so proud to say that i didn’t listen to anybody.
My goal was allways to push the limits so high that noone else can touch it….or to create a special move that can decide a whole battle.
I remember, First time i ever saw international BBoys was at BOTY 2000, after that my whole picture of bboying changed completly.
I thought hip hop was only about “Peace, Love & Unity” but then i saw the real competition side of Breakdance.
All the BBOYS were practicing the whole year only for this Day.
They were using their Moves like weapons.
In most of the Crews was only 1 Power Mover.
What made him so special was,
because not everbody could do this difficult moves….a power head was like a joker in a battle, everybody was waiting till he enter, to see him fly
I allways loved the feeling
of being a super hero like Goku from DragonBall Z.
With this mentality and the Power of being Young i start to believe in myself to reach a level of skills that nobody reached before.
Its easy to be relevant in the scene for only 2 years but it takes alot more effort & dedication to keep it for over 10 Years and still motivating & inspiring people from all around the World.
I don’t mean only the scene where u are killing it but also to go beyond your scene and attract people from every kind of scene to make your name bigger and make everybody understand your world & passion.
I would not say i became meainstream…. because i still do the same shit that i was doing before, the only difference is that i’m doing it on another level now #2hard2bite
Never go to the Mainstream to make people wanna like you, its better to do your thing so long till the mainstream come to you
In this point i need to thank my brother RubberLegz who knew me since i was 8 years old little kid.
RubberLegz is the best example that you should never listen to anybody.
I remember how the bboy scene was hating on him because he was doing something completely different to the rest.
The truth is that his skill level was already in 2005 so high that noone even now could bite (copy) his moves.
When they saw that all the moves became harder & harder they start to say thats not BBoying anymore and your stuff like real bboys dancing to the music just because they couldn’t catch up with level nomore.
To be honest i never saw BBoys killing the beats in the 80s
Anyway, the thing is they start to create there own rulez.
But we didn’t practice all day long 24/7 to be liked by them judges.
We danced because we liked the freedom to express ourselfs.
We had already so many rules in the school that we hated and we didn’t wanted to have somebody to tell us what to do.
Thats what Hip Hop was about…..to do your own thing
Long Story Short,
it was a long way to the point where we are now.
Peace & Love
