Bgirl Showcase at Battle of the Year 1997

Its International Woman’s Day. We would like to honor the woman in our community, the bgirls. This footage is 20 years old yet its still GOLD. So I decided I was going to write about my 1st video ever, BATTLE OF THE YEAR 1997. BOTY as many now call it, is the longest running bboy event in the world. BOTY 97 means so much to me because it introduced me to a new world. One… Read more

Battle of the Year Blog #3: The Movie & The Community

Last week, I wrote a blog about Battle of the Year dance contest going across the USA. The blog focused on choreo dancers judging the contest and not allowing bboy/bgirls to win. Everyone quickly turned around and reacted negatively. “F Battle of the Year!”, “The movie is a fake!”, “It’s not Hiphop!”, blah blah blah…and one more blah. The blog got taken completely out of context in every way possible. Blog #1: Battle of the… Read more


It was brought to my attention that Battle of the Year is having “Dance Off” Battles across the nation to promote the movie being released late September. Apparently the “contest” is being judged by choreo dancers and not Bboys. My question is, “Why?” With so many great Bboys in the movie and the movie being about BREAKIN, why wouldn’t they hire the featured bboys to fly out to these cities and Why have choreo dancers… Read more

Over the last few months I’ve been thinking a lot about BATTLE OF THE YEAR THE MOVIE, and the effects it will have on our community. I’ve been thinking about writing a series of blogs dedicated to “what might happen” after the movie is released. I have yet to see the movie, and the blogs wont be “about” the movie. My concern is not for it to win an Oscar, nor am I a movie critic, but… Read more

A step in the right direction…

In 2011 Braun Shavers, one of the leading manufacturers of electrical razors and shavers, decided it wanted to get involved with the bboy community across the world. Braun created a campaign featuring Ronnie of Full Force Crew and Lean Rock representing Floor Lords Crew. It was the first time such company invested any sort of resources into our community. Aside of sponsoring Ronnie and Lean Rock, Braun also sponsored events across the world. Unlike music videos or other sources… Read more
