The B-GIRL Story

June 25th, 2010

There are many stories of B-GIRL.  But the most important one is why we made the movie — we wanted to depict the b-boy/b-girl world with accuracy, integrity and respect.

Hear the stars of B-GIRL and more talk about the accuracy of B-GIRL and the collaboration and creativity that made it possible.

Live from the B-GIRL Red Carpet!

BEAT FREAKS on the Red Carpet!

May 4th, 2010

Dang, who are those incredible ladies?   Silly me… it’s The BEAT FREAKS!

This amazing all-female dance crew (America’s Best Dance Crew anyone?) are all B-GIRL family and joined us on the Red Carpet…

We’re so excited that Alison Faulk has returned after spending the year choreographing PINK’s latest world tour!  Alison is a founding member of the Beat Freaks and a choreographer in B-GIRL — she is responsible for the *steamy* salsa scene!

It’s a beautiful day in LA, much love to all!

Stars of “So You Think You Can Dance”

March 24th, 2010

So there’s this show… I think it’s about people who think they can dance?

SYTYCD is an AMAZING show, a massively-powerful force for good in the dance industry.  Not only does it  promote young dancers it showcases and celebrates SO many different styles of dance, giving cutting-edge choreography and creativity a forum for nation-wide appreciation.  Especially it is a chance for the public to see and respect Hip hop dance as the complex art form that it is!

We were thrilled to have recent stars of SYTYCD on the B-GIRL Red Carpet – Ellenore, Kathryn and B-GIRL star b-boy Legacy!

Keep watching the show, our two favorite choreographers/fashion designers and friends Napoleon & Tabitha D’uomo are on almost every week, raising the bar with creative and lyrical Hip hop choreography!

Much TiVo love,

Dance & Hollywood

March 3rd, 2010

It’s a great time to be in hip hop and in Hollywood – the creativity, skill and attention to the dance is like never before.  New people are seeing breaking for the first time on TV and in the movies and it is gaining respect as the legitimate art form that it is.  It’s also a time of unparalleled creativity – cutting-edge choreographers are pushing the limits of the mainstream definition of ‘hip hop’ – being emotional, telling a story – but also being rooted to the history and the cypher.

But with great power comes great responsibility…
We’ve got to make sure representations are accurate and artists are united.  Hear thoughts on this Lady Jules and the Beat Freaks; Legacy, Kathryn and Ellenore from So You Think You Can Dance; Jon Chu, Director of Step Up 2 and 3D; the stars of B-GIRL and more, all from the B-GIRL Red Carpet!

Speaking of Hollywood… BIG NEWS!! Our amazing choreographer Flipz (Ivan “Flipz” Velez) will be performing at the OSCARS on Sunday, March 7th. Tune in, TiVo, turn off the phone because Oscars ain’t never seen nothin’ like Flipz.  (Scorsese, from the front row: “that guy! I’m gonna make that guy a star!”)

Lady Jules on the Red Carpet!

February 22nd, 2010


The first OFFICIAL video from the B-GIRL Red Carpet in LA!

“B-girl TV” with our host, the fabulous b-girl Peppa (of Breakgirl, Syrenz and more!) Peppa is Joan & Melissa Rivers  with hard-hitting questions for everyone on the Red Carpet, like…. “What do you do to work out?” — we know Jules loves to dance but a serious b-girl has to train more, for strength, endurance and agility.  Jules talks about her process, about making the movie and her love for one Mr. Marty Scorsese! (short, but cute).
Lil’ bit of Hollywood humor there! :)

This is just the FIRST, more to follow so stay tuned!

Paparazzi love,
