_____________________________________________
HERE’S A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ROB!

The Rock Dance also known as “Rocking” or the “Uprock” has been the center of controversy in the B-Boy Community for the past 15 years!
The war-like dance started in NYC during the late 60s and was the precursor to Breakdancing and paralleled the Disco Era.
Due to the exclusiveness of The Brooklynights and New York Natives, Rocking has been a secretive form of dance… Until NOW!
Rob Nasty is a Champion Uprocker and established B-Boy from the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 20 years.
He has made personal pilgrimages to Brooklyn NYC and learned from the best of the best at this style of dance.
A seasoned veteran in all forms of “Rocking”,
Rob Nasty is leading the next generation of dancers into the “New Rock Era”, and is dedicated to spreading “Rock Dance Culture” around the world!

Last year, Sylentz and Dystraktion came into Cleveland to make a statement and walked out with the championship. This year it was Hornet and Viper’s turn! With only 6 crews of kids competing Citybreaks decided to make it a double elimination tournament. Which ended up Hornet and Viper vs Crash and DJ in the finals!! A Huge congratulations to Hornet and Viper for taking home the win and making 61Syx SDA back to back champions at Citybreaks!

Bree-O is an all around DANCER. It showed this passed weekend at the Pro-Am Michigan Qualifier at 61Syx SDA. Bree-O was able to oust 25 other competitors including his crewmate Dynamite (who took him out at the summer jam) and Dystraktion (61Syx’s Phenomenon Kid). It definitely was not an easy road for Bree-O who had to battle in two tie-breaks including the tiebreaker in the finals! But in the end his energy and all around dance ability proved to be enough to bring him to his first 1on1 win! Bree-O will now be headed down to the Pro-Am world finals in Miami, FL to represent 61Syx Teknique Street Dance Academy and the midwest! Congratulations and best of luck to Bree-O!

The competition was crazy, the DJ’s were on fire and with Seoul on the mic the vibe was hype all the way through.

Where 61Syx SDA’s students took 3 of the top 4 spots. and Viper took home the Win! Congratulations to Viper!!! The kids of 61Syx SDA Are on the come up! Keep your eyes open for them!!!!

Congratulations goes out to Bree-O for winning 61Syx SDA’s “Loose Change” student of the month! This young bboy is one of the most dedicated breakers that we have in the Street Dance Academy! Just about to his 1 year mark in breakin’ Bree-O has time and time again shown his passion for this dance by constantly improving, actively battling, and always wanting to learn! Another example of his dedication to the dance is how he decided he wanted to start his own crew (Ground Force1)! Which is now beginning to be a very dope group of kids consisting of Bree-O, Sleevez, Dynamite, and Kontent! Congratulations Bree-O! Very well deserved! Be on the look out for this one in the near future!
