ReFresH Dance

Inspiration from a friend

Senegalese Breakers – These bboys and bgirls take it to the beach because they have no where else to break. They’re called nomads because they they’re constantly on the move. We complain about lack of dance space here, but in Senegal, they don’t even have what we do. Not that we should feel guilty, but to be thankful because of it.

“In a country where most citizens live on less than a dollar a day… dance is an escape from some of the harsher realities of life.”


What More Can I say– Eun Lee’s project blog Finished and ready to be presented. Goal: to examine ReFresH: a hip hop dance crew, largely comprised of Asians and Asian-Americans, based at Northwestern University. (names changed for confidentiality ie Chris is not Bboy ChrisKnow)

The study of a hip hop dance crew reveals a symbiotic relationship between community and self-expression, which may serve as a model for music educators tackling issues of multiculturalism in their classroom culture and curriculum.

And Finally: Bunny! Yay!

  1. Man, the story of the Senegalese breakers is really inspiring. I love how bboys can come from any backgrounds, rich or poor. But no matter what, they all work hard to accomplish themselves as breakers, developing unique raw styles that can only be developed and taught by the bboy himself.
