TBT: To promoters with UDEF/Silverback Bboy Events sanctioned/sponsored jams.

UDEF/SBE took the USA breaking community by storm in 2014. Sponsoring jams left and right. Promising and delivering on these high price money events. Nothing like it has ever taken place in our community. Forget a “2nd place” prize, bboys/bgirls knew that just placing into the top 16 would get them a prize. 2014 was like Christmas all year round. Promoters went from being skeptical to lining up for sponsorship. For 2015, UEDF/SBE is sanctioning/sponsoring… Read more

Its very much common today for some bboys to stretch and warm up back stage vs actually hitting cyphers during the down time. We are all free to do as we want, we can call it the “evolution” of the dance,… Read more
