B Girl Be was an amazing gathering of Hip-hop masters and future stars..local and national.. Big shout to Motel 7 from South AFrica/Norway..Thank you to Intermedia Arts for really pulling through tomake this event happen despite challenges. Congrats to Desdemona, Theresa, Diana, Melissa, and Leah who was in the house with mom and grand mom.. and to AMy who curated the dance series!!  Thank you for the Tribute.. I am so grateful!

 Before the screening some b girls took fotos in front of screen and all enjoyed the concerts, workshops and conversations shared between young, old local, non local practitioners and community.

Everyone missed the other members of Collective 7 who due to life issues were not able to attend. Topics like the future of  bgirls, how to keep a businees afloat and issues of how we are percieved in the world were tackled afteward.

The power move workshop had a good turnout (male and female). Usually I just go into one or two moves.. but with so many students at so many different levels .. we actually went over backspins, windmills, headspins, swipes, turtles, flairs, and even nineties. I was happy to share ideas and fundamentals that I have learned from Kwikstep in my years of training. And some of the moves I am still in the pursuit of.. chasing.. and staying motivated by the journey.

Next weekend Burn Unit will screen the work in progress at the AC3 event..check flyer below.

About

“All The Ladies Say” is a film that highlights the lives of six iconic female street dancers from San Jose, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, who have carved a niche in the physically challenging, male dominated breakdance world. Discussions about motherhood, sexual tension, femininity versus masculinity and the rap industry/mainstream images are a few of the themes explored by the documentary’s main characters. International dancers not only make appearances but also add their two cents about life as a B Girl in the Hip-hop world.
