February Brings the Masters of Funk to the BCCA:

 

Come get down with Megatron! Explore is masterful take on Poppin', Lockin', Breakin', Hip Hop & Video Dance. Get funky with the one who taught us all! The BCCA has an exciting new hip-hop dance class with one of the original B-Boys Megatron from the Floorlords. Offered on Saturday’s from 2-3 starting this Saturday this class is the hip-hop class to rule them all. Checkout more at: http://www.bccaonline.com or -call 617-738-2800.

 

Megatron’s Bio (from http://www.floorlords.com):

I started poppin’ and lockin’ back in 1978. I was self taught and formed a group called Cosmic Reaction. I then moved on to co-found The Floorlords in 1981. We started out doing street performances and during that time, we travelled all across the country.

I consider my style to be very original as far as being creative. My style is very versatile and I consider myself a perfectionist. My training technique is very intense and I like to create difficult routines as well as difficult moves.

 

More about the Floor Lords:

Originally formed in 1981, the Floor Lords have played an important role in the evolution of hip-hop culture for two decades. Helping first define and then expand the art of breaking, the group has helped bring hip hop to millions of fans worldwide through television and film appearances on "Live With Regis & Kathy Lee", "Donahue", "Krush Groove", and "Southie". Now established as a professional dance troupe, the Floor Lords continue to share their art through "Floor Lore", a play written, directed and choreographed by the group, and through other Special Performances.

 

***************************

Also new to the BCCA’s awesome hip-hop lineup is Jose (Chickey) Hernandez’ Funk, Breakin’, Hip Hop & Video Dance class for Teens - every Wednesday at 4:45 p.m.  (This class replaces Whitney Low’s & Craig Smith’s Hip Hop Mania & Video Dance classes, since they are both on leave.)  Chickey is the Founder of the old-school poppin’, lockin’ & breakin’ group, Lords of Illusion, so you’re in for a wild time!

 

***************************

Michelle Deane has gone on leave to complete her Elementary Education Masters degree.  She will return in the last Spring or early Summer, and has asked Stacey Solomon & Aaron Shi (two capable & talented hip-hop dancers) to take over her classes in the interim.  So don’t miss a heartbeat, cause she’ll be back and you better be ready.
