We experienced an NBK reunion in Jersey City with CUDA Culture at the annual Santa Cruzan festival battle on Grove St. It was great to see all the familiar faces and to support the new younger Breakers. Congrats to Cuda Culture and GI Jane for always organizing an annual jam for local dancers to participate. Shout to Bboy Bgirl Lifestyle- Rival’s program– that keeps Breakin alive in Jersey City. Shout to Bboy Rich Nyce from Newark who also represents the culture and community in NJ and continues to be involved in the events.
Shout to all the Breakers that competed. Congrats to BBoy Roflow adult 1v1 champ and to Quiet Storm and Bgirl Crazy for their 2v2 win! Shout to KBL – Kids Breakin League. Shout to those who support the United Hiphop Vanguard to this day. It was sparked in 2020 with the need to address concerns about the future of Breakin and has since visited Cleveland and Arizona and Jersey City and soon to Miami and Denver in June.
