It is the film that has had the most impact on people, in no small part due to Nico Major - the BBoy, style-writer, and creator of StyleTrial - a place where BBoys and BGirls come together to learn, develop, and share their skills in the art of breaking.
I've been lucky enough to meet my fair share of inspirational characters on my journey thus far, and Nico certainly is that. His passion and dedication to his art, and his determination to encourage and teach youngsters through dance is something I truly admire. From spending time with him and researching the movement itself, it helped me start seeing things in a different light, and really paved the way for the direction I find myself heading in now.....
Do you live to work, or do you work to live?
