Last Saturday I had a great honor receiving a special Pioneer Award by Finnish Street Dance Association in the Nordic Moves event in Helsinki. The award was given based on experience, history and first of all making a difference in putting Finnish Street Dance culture on the map worldwide. Of course I recognize that pioneers of the creation of this dance is a whole other story and a different league. But it still felt good to get recognition for the blood, sweat and years. When we started there was no role models of international bboys, what we saw on video was from another world. Still couldn’t help but get down. So it’s been a long way. The award motivates to continue no doubt. Thank you Nordic Moves.
