Internationally known Street dance Icons Kwikstep and Rokafella co-founded Full Circle Prod Inc a non profit Hip hop dance company in order to preserve and embrace the ongoing evolution of the urban expression. The duo began by producing short theatrical pieces that grew to include all elements of Hip-hop onstage and offering workshops about the original aesthetic of the dance and its roots. Performances at The New Victory Theater, Kennedy Center and Harlem Stage are among the list of venues their all inclusive Hip-hop theater shows have been presented. Together they have mentored NYC youth to aspire to careers in Hip hop and dance related ventures by offering ongoing open Break dance sessions in community centers and after school programs whose formats have been implemented by many in the dance community. Proving to spark fearless creativity in themselves and others, Full Circle collaborated and produced a film about the Bgirl lifestyle entitled All The Ladies Say and created Behind The Groove- a unique club party that featured a diverse play list of all dance genres catering to the local / international dance students and the dance masters of NYC. The party offered a space for street and club dancers to enjoy niche non top 40 dance music, a chance to check out exhibition battles and even catch classic performers. Kwikstep and Rokafella strike a balance and successfully capture the resilience of the 80’s and the independence of today’s technological vibrancy, bringing authenticity to the commercial world and fostering the next generation of well rounded Hip-hop all stars.
