En enero, yo tenia el placer de conocer a Claudio Flores. Fue por su cuenta que podia siguir bailando break y funky mientras que estuve en Santiago. Su dedicacion y presencia honesto me dejo impresionado. Aqui hay un video de un evento donde Claudio canto en su grupo Fuerza Hip Hop con MC Tanque, un otro tipo bien real y simpatico. Es por tipos como Claudio y Tanque que, encima de todo la mierda del ‘mainstream’, el hiphop sigue haciendo una experiencia real.

Though some might see this as me spending too much time watching dancing videos instead of dancing (which it is), I thought I’d share the movements I admire. So, some videos of different contemporary dance styles that I like (thank you youtube):
