September 30th, Power Footwork-
The month has to end with a bang! In this final installment of “Back to School”, footwork will be explored in another way. In a way that expresses more athleticism, strength and balance. Ken Swift said it himself, Footwork can be just as difficult as power. He is the one who coined it “Power Footwork”. But of course we got a Dynamic style to it. Come and check it out!!!
Bio of Kid Glyde
Victor “Kid Glyde” Alicea’s credo is “If you can conceive it, you can achieve. it” At thirty years old, Kid Glyde has already achieved much of what he has conceived—and won’t be stopping anytime soon. Hailing from Queens, New York, Kid Glyde is the president of the acclaimed NYC b-boy crew, The Dynamic Rockers, which he not only inherited, but has also revived. He has appeared in acclaimed dance movies such as Step Up 2 & 3, Bumper, Pressure, and the b-boy documentary All Out War. He is also the principal actor in “I Break NY”, a webisode series about Kid Glyde and the Dynamic Rockers’ struggles and triumphs in 2009. He is the son of legendary Glyde of the original Dynamic Rockers and has been breaking for sixteen years, starting with lessons from both his father and Kid Freeze. After his first major battle victory in 2006 at the Universal Zulu Nation B-boy/B-girl Throwdown, he has only continued further with his success as a b-boy. He has taken titles at major battles such as the Rock Steady Crew Anniversary Battles in 2007 and 2008 and won Eurobattle 2009 with his crew. He also represented the USA in the 2009 Red Bull BC One competition, the most prestigious 1 v. 1 b-boy battle in the world. Recently, Kid Glyde and the Dynamic Rockers have been taking battles by storm, winning first place in the Masters of the Art 6 battle in NYC, Funk What U Heard in Connecticut, and representing the USA at IBE (International Breaking Event), the largest international b-boying tournament. Kid Glyde even organizes major events himself, such as the famous B-boy Massacre series and the unique Octagon NYC battles. He also teaches and is the featured b-boy expert for HowCast.com, an online tutorial website. Kid Glyde remains a prominent and inspirational b-boy in the hip-hop community and continues to take b-boying culture to the next level.
