Life of a B-Boy
I became a b-boy mainly because I was curious. I literally had never danced before. I also needed a way to release a lot of the stress and rough times I was going through so basically this was my way out. My love for dancing grew ever since. Every step, hop, toprock, footwork, it all depicted the emotions I was holding inside. I released those emotions into my movements. B-boying was more than just a hobby to me. It was a way to express myself unlike any other alternative. I knew people were going to judge me and make fun of me but after a while you just stop giving a damn. I made a lot of close friends in the 700 Club here at Newark Memorial, we each had our own story of why we began B-boying and still choose to do so today. I still remember my freshman year when we would always stay behind after school to have what were known as sessions. You’d get in a cypher and simply b-boy. That’s how we enjoyed ourselves most of the time. Whether we danced on tile, concrete, grass, we always had good times and laughs. I know for sure I’m going to miss all of the 700 Club’s members once I graduate.
