Amazing moves & acrobatics and why it’s not Breakin
The video below should explain to many young breakers why certain “bboys” who claim to have evolved their skill are really not evolving or Breakin at all.

Happy 9 Year Anniversary to Outbreak Hip Hop Festival!
It was today, 9 years ago, that my life changed forever. OUTBREAK HIPHOP JAM took place in a small church spot in Pembroke Pines, a sub division of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
