What do you do:
Where do you work:
Bronx & Brooklyn, New York and all over
When did you realize you wanted to be a B-girl:
It wasn’t even a realization. It was something that I felt naturally. I’d always been an athlete growing up so this was my perfect niche to get into. I was going from one thing to the next and this was my next thing in life. It was a natural transition.
Why work in this field:
For me it’s a way of life. I’m very proud to be a part of it. It’s helped me out with a lot of different things in life. It’s given me an outlet from my everyday stress. At first it started out as something that I participated in with the dance element and now in the later years of my life it’s a celebration.
How would you advise others:
Definitely learn your history. Do your homework, do your research. There’s a lot of information out there these days that we didn’t have. There is online support. Look up bboy.com, bboyworld.com. It’s as simple as that. You can try and get teaching videos. There are classes. I teach classes in the Bronx. There are a whole lot of different outlets where you can get information from.
