How to Progress in Dance/Life.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION…

Im no prophet this is just my opinion so don’t have a cow!

A few answers.

How to get better in this dance?

first off ask yourself what do you want to get out of dancing? Ex: Fame. Money, Respect, Travel, girls and so on?

Once you find that out you already half way there”knowing is half the battle” i believe if you know what you want in life

your about half way their. A lot people go to school taking random classes not knowing what “major” they want so…

really honestly what do you want out of dance..if its girls then more power to you. As long as you have a good reason for

yourself it will fuel your training a lot more than just practicing cause your friends do it. The reason might change dramatically

as time passes.

Your Mind should be training just as hard as your body…so… “your brain better be doing airflares while your body is doing airflares.”

As far as practice/training goes, “Keep Moving” theirs so many things to learn…its endless. the moment you sit down and take 30 min to think of on one

movement or some steps. you could have done a whole lot of other things. you can always come back to what you didnt learn another

time…dont get stuck just move on and come back…… so nobody should be sitting down at a practice spot having a conversation like your at Starbucks. When your being lazy and lost someone else in the world is getting crazier and focused.

I believe this goes the same for anything you try to acheive in life.

Bboys have injuries all the time, work around them.

Iron monkey was in bed for an eye surgery for half a year all that time he focused about dancing so his mind was ready for craziness

when he was healed.

I hurt my wrist for about half a year. i used my other hand ..when my wrist healed i had developed both hand type movements.

Nasty.

Being a Bboy/Dancer in LA.

Being a Bboy/Dancer in LA.

Just Dance

Even with as many titles that I have/you have or anyone else in the dancing world, it doesn’t mean much in a city of more talk then action. More like i know him better so i will hire that guy over the qualified dancer even though his skills are 2% of what you can do.

Sadly its who you suck up too for….. I would say 85% of the time, but my goal is to find that ther 15% that see’s true skills in what they do and beleive in not some washed up corny dancers who sucks a lot of you know what to get where he/she is and there is a vast amount of those in this town……And their running it.

If you wanna be a full time dancer in LA you gota be on point with everything you do, I MEAN EVERYTHING how you dress,talk, etc.. you better not be a complete douchebag or anything stupid or else i believe you wont get far in the 15% of truth!

:EXAMPLE:

One day i saw a “basic billy” actor/gymnast i don’t even know…… what he thought he was really, who was asked to perform some easy tasks “which he looked very beginner newB status doing…” for being as skilled in acrobatics as he is. But his face was very i would say, MARKETABLE “good looking” so the director kept him for the job. meanwhile theirs a bunch of people that can do the movement 10x better and whatever else than this guy. I was not the other people but yet this happens all the time.

all this said, just keep going and dont sleep on anyone especially yourself.

I know im complaining a lot but it helps me vent out some crap and i know people read this so that makes me happy.

Nasty.

“BOUNCING CATS”

FILM SYNOPSIS

Uganda has been called one of the worst places on earth to be a child. In the South, children face the threat of poverty and disease. In the North, these threats are enflamed by a brutal, mindless war inflicted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (L.R.A.) that has divided families, displaced millions, and led to the abduction and mutilation of tens of thousands of children resulting in the deterioration of identity and culture.

Bouncing Cats is the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of
Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. In 2006, Abraham “Abramz” Tekya, a Ugandan b-boy and A.I.D.S. orphan created Breakdance Project Uganda (B.P.U.). The dream was to establish a free workshop that would empower, rehabilitate and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture. Based in Kampala, Uganda, B.P.U. has recently expanded to include permanent classes in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Abramz teaches classes three times a week to more than 300 kids from all parts of the country. Many of the children are homeless, victims of war and poverty, and few can afford proper schooling yet they walk from miles away to attend the B.P.U. classes. As Abramz says, “This is where many people’s pride is. It’s a skill that no one can take away from us.”

Crazy Legs, one of the founding members of the seminal Rock Steady Crew visited Uganda after receiving an invitation from Abramz to teach b-boy classes. What he discovered upon his arrival was both heartbreaking and inspiring. Traveling throughout Uganda, from the southern slums to the war-torn North, Crazy Legs encountered a passion for hip-hop and desire to learn amongst the most squalid conditions.

Bouncing Cats follows Abramz, Crazy Legs, and Breakdance Project Uganda on a journey to use hip-hop culture for positive social change. The film features narration by Common and interviews with Mos Def, Will-I-Am, and K’Naan
