The Flying Legs Crew dives right into the New York City hip-hop scene with a master class at Full Circle Productions, the groundbreaking, non-profit hip-hop dance company founded by b-boy Kwikstep and b-girl Rokafella. The two dance veterans partnered up in 1996, sharing a dedication to the fundamentals and education of hip-hop, as well as a welcoming attitude to performers of all cultures and genders. Since then, Full Circle Productions has grown in size and recognition, bringing hip-hop to stages all around the world. The Flying Legs Crew stopped by Full Circle Productions for a master class, taught by co-founder b-girl Rokafella. Afterwards, she takes a moment to discuss teacher/student attitudes, language barriers, effort vs. authenticity, and the challenges facing b-girls today.
