Here’s a music video we shot this spring for the local dance school.

We got two tasties for you this time, first an interview from world famous Bboy Hoo Hoo:

Kaj Bärlund interview

Hey!

Last year we interviewed Kaj Bärlund after Back to Practice 2. The interview got lost in the piles of hard drives that are laying around at Anssi’s place, which we call our Archives.

Anyways, Kaj is a youth leader, a martial arts instructor, a bboy and an original thug from the streets. He was saved by hip-hop, and he is on a mission to save the youth of our capital area. He gave us an Urban Martial Arts lesson and participated in our 1vs1 bboy competition as well as the All-Styles crew competition.

Enjoy and share!

One last Battle – A Street Soul TV Short movie

Hey!

Here is our first short film that we produced just with our dance crew. We’ve been filming other shorts for a long time, but we haven’t had our dancers acting in the them before. Also we made this because our bboy and hip-hop event Back to Practice had a video competition, and this was one of the participating movies.  All went well, and this is the result!

The movie is about two men, preparing for battle!

Epic isn’t it? Share on your facebook wall to support us! :)
