Breakumentary: Episode 2

thumbnail for the breakumentary

The good people at More Than a Stance have a documentary series examining different perspectives of Breakin’ (aka breakdancing). In their latest Breakumentary ROXRITE, PALMER, KEEBZ, and MIG187 discuss the art of paying dues and getting paid. Plenty of thoughtful perspectives from those interviewed, as well as comments on how some breakers approach the dance.

You can watch the video in a new tab by clicking this link. Please let me know how you feel about what’s said in the video by commenting below!

YouTube: International Youth Day Mashup Challenge – Winners – Loebz and JFX ill at will

Footage of our performance from The International Youth Day Mash Up Challenge. Pretty much me and Jim’s goal was to have fun and rep well for the bboy/bgirl dance community. A personal honor for me to perform in front of my Korean adopted student Damon. I want to thank Mind your Mind, Dynamic Dozen, all the other competitors… and the WILD WILD WILD FANS! Much love; peace!

Manifesto Festival 2010 Recap – Full Length on Vimeo

Here is a dope video recap of Toronto’s hip-hop festival called “ManifesTO” which happened summer 2010. It was a week long festival that featured many events, and Ill at Will members were on the scene during the Canada Pro B-Boy battle and block party at Young & Dundas Square! At the battle many of Canada’s top crews competed for $3000 and at the block party concert J. Period, Black Thought of the Roots, and others performed while merchants did their thing and the dancers rocked a cypher!

Can you spot the Illains (IAW members) in the video clip?!
