This blog has been a few months coming. More than a few already know but after this blog, everyone will. After a 5 year run, The Bboy Spot is closing it doors July 31st.
Straight and to the point:
WHY? Because our contract with the facility is coming to an end. We have a new dream, a bigger dream. Our dream is to BUY OUR OWN FACILITY. About 8-9 months ago, we planned to renew our contract until I pulled out a calculator and realized that if we re-signed: New Contract + 5 years of paid rent = the income to buy our own facility.
In conclusion, we are on a THINK BIGGER mentality.
No more Outbreak:
With Outbreak Hiphop Festival USA coming to an end, our facility is too big for us. We no longer need such a big location. When we buy our own spot, it will probably 50% the size of this one. Just big enough for small jams.
I have a son now, To be at The Spot from 9:00am to 11:00pm just about every Monday through Friday takes a toll. My son is 1. I want to be around him for more than 1-2 hours a day. I want to enjoy his presence and not have to worry about opening up The Spot or having to work late night hours.
We are a little sad about our decision because of the many bboys and bgirls from across the world that traveled to experience The Bboy Spot. To get so many comments from bboys and bgirls telling us how it is their dream to come to The Spot is very flattering. To those bboys and bgirls we say, hold on to your dream.
TheBboyspot.com will still be here. WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!
We don’t need to start a “gofundme”. Thanks to THE COMMUNITIES SUPPORT, we have managed just fine and we want to say THANK YOU. We will continue to work hard for the community and the only thing we ask is to keep supporting us as you have.
Thank you guys for everything.
