Focus 2010 Resumé for Bboyspot’s BBoy of the Year contest
When the top 8 contestants for Bboyspot’s Bboy of the Year contest were selected, the onganization told the nominees to promote and campaign on web for more votes. So here’s my resumé from the year 2010. Keep in mind the criteria when voting. Big thank you for all the votes, I really appreciate the support and effort. The voting is open until 30th of November. Vote here.
Did they put their skill on the line for the 2010 calendar year? How many battles were competed and won. Cypher battles count as much as competition battles.
Did they teach workshops, judge events or organize events for bboys to attend? Online involvement through forums and blogs. The “Each One Teach One” mentality is a very important aspect in growth of our culture.
Are they professional? Are they known to be a pleasure to work with? What kind of name do they have among promoters and fellow Bboys?
Focus Flow Mo Crew Resumé 2010
During 2010 Focus entered some contests but he concentrated more on rocking circles, battling in circles, teaching workshops both national and international, throwing events and judged a lot of battles. The biggest accomplishment was a dream from many years, opening a street dance center, Saiffa - Flow Mo Dance School, in Helsinki May 2010 with three other Flow Mo members. Saiffa provides high quality weekly classes, international workshops by stars of the game and jam production for dancers by dancers. Focus also teaches weekly classes at Saiffa, kids and adults on all levels.
2010 Focus won with Flow Mo the sixth Finnish Crew Championship tittle. A few of his competition battles ended up classics, like Flow Mo vs Rivers in Hip H’opsession and Flow Mo vs Skill Methodz. Circle Kingz 2010 Focus reached the finals with Hatsolo for the fifth time. In circles Focus battled in most of the jams he went to during the year. Good example about this is Flow Mo vs Ghost Crew battle in August.
2010 Focus was the first bboy (correct me if I’m wrong) in history to be named a battle after, when IBE renamed their Footwork Battle IBE Focus Footwork battle. That was to show honor him winning the IBE Footwork tittle three times (twice in Holland and once in UK Champs).
2010 Focus judged international major battles including UK World Bboy Championships Crew Battle Finals, IBE Battles in Holland, and altogether fifteen battles worldwide in countries such as Taiwan, Israel Brazil, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Slovakia, Estonia etc.
2010 Focus taught tons workshops including a 5 city tour around Taiwan, Brazil, Israel, France, Spain, a week’s long camp in Sweden, sold out IBE footwork workshop etc.
2010 Focus organized or was part of organizing eight events in Finland including Circle Prinz Finland and “The Go Off” Finland. Focus performed in theaters in Finland, Sweden and Netherlands with Flow Mo’s theater piece “Response”. Focus performed a bunch of charity shows for free to make bboying more known in Finland. He kept his blog updated consistantly and was part of the original team for bboyinsiders.com website that gathers blogs from the most active bboys in the game. He keeps studying Arts Management in University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki full time to make his event production and management more professional. On top of this Focus keeps training super hard, representing his crew and rocking circles where ever he goes to.
