We are a collective of bboys, bgirls & artists. Our art is a reflection of our life, we love to travel and learn from our generation’s past/innovators, share and pass down knowledge to the youth, collaborate through organizing community events, performances, hold it down in the cyphers, workshops, and camps. We value the endless creative process and expression of self in this art form, and we do what we do to uplift our communities; which is the cypher that never ends.
