The #redbullbcone Camp Houston is this weekend! I’ll be teaching a workshop/lecture demo Saturday how to teach/break down your concepts into a teachable format. The inspiration for this class is each one teach one or many, and how important the skill set of teaching is, in order to pass the dance forms along. There are a lot of great classes/lectures to attend this weekend and they are free if you register https://www.redbull.com/us-en/events/bc-one-camp-usa/schedule-bc-one-camp-usa 👀 the full schedule for battle info, performances and parties. It’s going to be a great weekend! Plus – livestreams of the Red Bull BC One B-Girl US National Finals and Red Bull BC One US National Finals: win.gs/bconeYTlive
Made the most of a quick 2 day trip to Korea for @jbgp_official 13th Anniversary. I appreciate and was inspired by the humility of the Korean Bboys an Bgirls and their skills! To see 2 iconic Korean Bboy crews @rivers_crew and @gamblerzcrew_koreabboy in the finals and witness their raw skill and passion was the highlight of this trip.

I love Chinese New Year and celebrating it with family and friends making lots of 🥟 together! Culture, heritage and traditional rituals are important to pass down to the now generation. 🧧🥢🥟🌕🎋🐷 Gong xi fa cai 恭喜发财 Pig is not thought to be a smart animal in China. It likes sleeping and eating and becomes fat. Thus it usually features laziness and clumsiness. On the positive side, it behaves itself, has no plan to harm others, and can bring affluence to people. Consequently, it has been regarded as wealth. Hope the new year brings new insight, prosperity, love and goodness into your life❣️

What a weekend! Hip-Hop 🎭 has always had a special place in my ❤️. Seeing So What Happens Now, that became Jam On the Groove inspired me to follow a dream and become a Bgirl. Helping to develop and perform in @madeumira piece Love Es Love about toxic relationships and narcissistic “playa” men in Hip-Hop was an incredible experience and being part of @breakinconvention was thrilling! Performing alongside my daughter Yasmin was my personal highlight. What can I say? We killed it!
Super stoked to be a part of Breakin Convention coming up Nov 3-4. This is an international Hip-Hop dance theatre show. We will be performing as Love Es Love on Nov 4 so if your in Colorado cop some tickets!

Bgirl City is definitely one of my fave events. Why? Because it’s female centric and honors the legacy of Bgirls who paved the way. The love shown is immeasurable and much needed. We survived some chaotic times in the 90s and are now strong and solid in our love and support of one another and commitment to progress our Bgirl Movement forward❣️We endured a lot of negativity and strife, imagine if we are encouraging, helpful, and loving the results we can get both within the community and on the battle front. ❤️ 💣 Big respect ✊🏽 to @breakgirl78 for her vision, foresight, and commitment to making this event happen. 💗
Its rare for me and my daughter @yazz.melara to be in the same production and I feel so blessed to be able to work with her and these amazing folks on our piece for @breakinconvention.

There is a revival going on strong in Aretha Franklin’s honor right now! From gospel, blues, jazz, rnb and pop she did it her way, which is uncommon in today’s programmed, manufactured world. Aretha Franklin help fund the Civil Rights Mov’t, and toured with Martin Luther King JR. She gave everyone an earful with Respect ✊🏽, her voice and songs helped sustain veterans through war. Anthems for women’s rights and social justice, she sang about life, feelings, relationships and the Lord. Trial and tribulation echoed in her life and music, her vocal gifts touch the soul. She left us a plethora of musical gems. May she Rest In Peace with our Lord. #QueenOfMusic #FirstLadyOfRocknRollHallofFame #SoulChild #SoulSinger #Believer #CivilRightsVoice #StarsForFreedom #Mother #Grandma #Star #Herstory
