BBOYWORLD SUPPORTS WDSF & YOG 2018

Featured

Most of you are probably aware by now that breaking has been accepted into the Youth Olympics in 2018.
Here at Bboyworld we are very excited with this development as this will provide a platform for current and future dancers and officially recognize them as athletes.

The Youth Olympics will bring numerous opportunities for the Bboy / Bgirl community worldwide as there will be a need to prepare, train and coach aspiring Olympians both physically and mentally for the pursuit of Olympic gold. Soon we will start to see an increased interest in our culture as well as registrations for dance classes around the world. All of this will bring economic benefits on multiple levels within our culture.

Currently the WDSF is in talks with several people from our community ensuring that the traditions and values of our culture are respected and preserved. Bboyworld fully supports WDSF and we are looking forward to seeing a bright future being built for our new generation of supreme athletes.

Sincerely

Erwin Mahroug

Bboyworld President

RIP VINCENT FOSTER AKA MR ANIMATION

Las Vegas resident Vincent Foster, 49, died at UMC, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

NHP’s preliminary investigation said the collision occurred about 11:45 p.m. when a white 2015 Toyota Scion XB taxi that was eastbound on Spring Mountain Road collided with a bicycle being driven by Foster against a “no walk” signal near Mel Torme Way.

“The taxi had a green light and proceeded eastbound toward the intersection,” the news release stated. “Foster was on a bicycle and traveling from the north side of Spring Mountain to the south in a marked crosswalk. The pedestrian disregarded the “No Walk” signal and rode into the path of the taxi resulting in a collision.”

Foster was ejected from the bicycle and transported to UMC Trauma with life-threatening injuries. He died Friday.

A man driving the taxi driver on scene and cooperated with the investigation. The taxi did not have any passengers and the driver was not issued a traffic citation.

Respect In Peace -The Sad State of R16 Korea

Featured

Dearest fans, supporters and participators of the R16 Global Series,
I regret to inform you that the Korean government has cancelled the funding for R16 as a whole and without government support, it will not be possible to hold the R16 World Finals in Korea. This came as a very big shock to us as this year was going to be our Tenth anniversary and we had many plans to make this special. As much as you may feel upset or disappointed, please understand that the Korean government has never supported any event over 4 years, while R16 was supported for nine years! However, it must have been more and more difficult for them to prove that R16 is benefiting “Korean tourism”, which is where the budget comes from. Also perhaps with the Winter Olympics coming to Korea, may have also had an affect on the “tourism budget” as well.
Legendary battles


What saddens me the most, is the fact that R16 was the last annual large scale international event held in Korea. I only first heard about the country of Korea back in early 2000’s from the Korean bboys when they were making noise around the world. The whole worldwide Bboy community looked to Korea, as they had some of the biggest sponsored events the world ever seen, it gave many Bboys “hope” in a progressing Bboy future.

Hope… That’s what R16 meant to me, and I’m sure many young Bboys around the world may have felt the same.

So it saddens me to say, that it looks as though there will not be an R16 tenth year anniversary in Korea, however to be clear, we have found another option. The R16 World Finals will be moved to another country in Asia… Taiwan on December 10th 2016 (The weekend after Red Bull BC One World Finals in Japan).
The Bboy scene in Taiwan has grown to such a high level in the past few years and if there is any country in Asia that has the potential and government support to keep this battle alive, it’s definitely Taiwan. Although the overall budget won’t be the same as it was in Korea, this is going to be a fresh start for R16, beginning with a 4 on 4 Bboy battle however bringing it back up to 16 countries!
Saving this event could not have been done without all our event partners around the world who insisted to keep on going. The R16 World Finals will be moving every year or two to other countries who have interest in hosting the world finals. Also, the Korean Tourism Organization (the official owners of the R16 brand) believes that we may be able to bring R16 back to Korea in the coming years!
If you would like to help, you can send a sincere petition to the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism (MCST) of Korea to continue and preserve R16. Please remember to be respectful, and include why you believe that R16 should not come to an end, the impact R16 and Korean Bboys had on you AND the world. If the Korean government can know how big and influential Korean Bboying has on the rest of the world, perhaps they may continue to support.
When clicking on the link below, you will need to download the petition application form. If possible, please send any other file or picture you might have to show your love and support, or if you have even traveled to Korea before, send a picture to show that R16 has indeed brought tourism to Korea. If you haven’t been to Korea before, you can also make a pledge to come to Korea for a visit someday for R16 or a simple visit. Please click on the MCST contact / petition page here:

Respect in Peace


Whether or not R16 continues, scales down, moves to another country or ends now or in the near future, on behalf of Cartel Creative and all the R16 Global Championships, I just want to sincerely thank everyone for your participation, support and love that you show us for the past 9 years. Please do not give up on the dream of a professional Bboy future where our culture, artform, dance and bboys can make a decent sustainable living while being recognized, respected and valued by the entire world…
and I promise to do the same.
Much love and Respect,
Dyzee

Jimmy and Brad Pitt have a “breakdance conversation” from the basement of 30 Rock in New York City.

Featured

They’re used to facing one another beneath the glare of studio lighting, but Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon found themselves in unfamiliar and significantly funnier territory on Wednesday evening.

The pair are given the chance to show off their breakdancing skills as they face-off for a body-popping contest in an empty garage.

With no dialogue, Brad and Jimmy apparently conduct a conversation through interpretive dance for the three minute video that aired on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

In 1986, he came up with the name Hip Hop Elements for a live performance piece. In 1992, he launched the clothing line and started getting involved with community Hip Hop events. In 1996, Speedy Legs founded the Bboy Masters Pro-Am with Zulu Gremlin. It was the first and only annual battle in the United States at the time, the first Bboy conference in the world and the only event that innovated separate dance categories for Bboys, Bgirls, Crews, Poppin’, Lockin’, UpRockin’, Power Moves, Bonnie & Clyde, Veteran and Abstract dance styles.

While he mostly grew up in Miami, he spent the later half of the 1980′s and early 1990′s living in New York and pursuing his dreams of battling the originators of the dance. It was during this time that he grew close roots and won the respect of organizations like Zulu Nation and members of historical Bboy crews. While the scene in New York was dying out, Speedy Legs returned to Florida, started the Pro-Am with Zulu Gremlin, and put Miami on the map by inspiring a whole new generation of bboy superstars in crews like: Street Masters, Ground Zero, Flipside Kings, Skill Methodz, Illmatic Flow, Unique Styles, Mind 180, Future Force, Raw Meat and many more. His website, HipHopElements.com was also one of the first Hip Hop Dance websites on the net, up since 1999. Once the host of his own radio show and a DJ since 1987, Richard was constantly working as an entertainer and deeply involved with the community. Mr. Fernandez spent 15+ years teaching dance classes to underpriviliged children and young adults at centers like the Hollywood Police Athletic League, The Boys & Girls Club and various Miami recreation centers. Local newspapers and television stations have done story after story about his efforts to keep kids off the streets and involved in positive recreational activities.
