Spring Afterschool: Tuesdays from 4:30-5:15, ages 3.5-5
$300 12 sessions - 9/20-12/13 (skipping 11/29)
Dynamic Kids Brooklyn ( http://www.kidsbreakingleague.com) is partnering with The Great Room to provide a unique afterschool program. Bring your kids to "Break out their shell" in this class that will help guide them in basic movements. Movements that will guide them to doing things they never thought they could do before. With fun music and small challenges, children are motivated to explore their strengths and weakness to build up their dance vocabulary. With the moves they are taught and create on their own, they are able to tell their own story through the art of "Breaking". A dance created by kids and young adults that has changed the lives of many around the world.
Our program will also be a part of the Kids Breaking League. A league where schools compete with each other through a season. A league but also a community of other kids meeting, learning and competing with one another throughout the year. So whether your child is doing this for pure fun or for challenging themselves, this class is definitely for you.
About the teacher: Victor “Kid Glyde” Alicea’s credo is “If you can conceive it, you can achieve. it” At thirty years old, Kid Glyde has already achieved much of what he has conceived—and won’t be stopping anytime soon. Hailing from Queens, New York, Kid Glyde is the president of the acclaimed NYC b-boy crew, The Dynamic Rockers, which he not only inherited, but has also revived. He has appeared in acclaimed dance movies such as Step Up 2 & 3, Bumper, Pressure, and the b-boy documentary All Out War. He is also the principal actor in “I Break NY”, a webisode series about Kid Glyde and the Dynamic Rockers’ struggles and triumphs in 2009. He is the son of legendary Glyde of the original Dynamic Rockers and has been breaking for sixteen years, starting with lessons from both his father and Kid Freeze. After his first major battle victory in 2006 at the Universal Zulu Nation B-boy/B-girl Throwdown, he has only continued further with his success as a b-boy. He has taken titles at major battles such as the Rock Steady Crew Anniversary Battles in 2007 and 2008 and won Eurobattle 2009 with his crew. He also represented the USA in the 2009 Red Bull BC One competition, the most prestigious 1 v. 1 b-boy battle in the world. Recently, Kid Glyde and the Dynamic Rockers have been taking battles by storm, winning first place in the Masters of the Art 6 battle in NYC, Funk What U Heard in Connecticut, and representing the USA at IBE (International Breaking Event), the largest international b-boying tournament. Kid Glyde even organizes major events himself, such as the famous B-boy Massacre series and the unique Octagon NYC battles. He also teaches and is the featured b-boy expert for HowCast.com, an online tutorial website. Kid Glyde remains a prominent and inspirational b-boy in the hip-hop community and continues to take b-boying culture to the next level.
