I’d like to share with you the story of my special friend. I call him “Heisenberg”
In his words…
Unlike handmade art or anything that is tangible, dance is a momentary escape to feeling alive. It lets me express myself and reveals to me what I can make myself of, an expression of my very soul.
My dance is an outward form of an inner experience of how I feel. Although, I’d never given much thought to how I would live my life, I was born and chosen to be a dancer.
Daily dance uplifts the soul to spiritual realms.”Lailah Gifty Akita
I dance always, everywhere and anywhere. And one thing that has been consistent is the hustle.
I learnt more from my failures than I did from my success and I like to talk about them. I lost major events like “Freeze, Red Bull BC One, Blame it on the Boogie, Circle Masters and may others. Each time I lost, I told myself Go back home. Train your ass and come back. Don’t give up until you perform your best. And there are times when I give my best and may still loose at the event. I don’t call it a loss.
My idols of inspiration are Goku and Vegita from Dragon Ball Z. I grew up watching them coming out as warriors and fighters with each passing challenge. I imagined myself in these fiction characters. They never gave up. Simple anime that taught to me the art of being alive and train to be my version of best.
Hip-hop by far is an underlooked dance form,especially in Hyderabad. Although I never danced for money, I must admit that we’re not given as much recognition as I think we deserve. It takes me 10 years to achieve a 60 seconds of performance I give. And sometimes, one single move could take years to master.
I had to do something for my community. The community I belonged. I realized the gap that Hyderabad is not an active promoter of hip-hop jamz and culture. I wanted to be there for those who needed that guidance.Thats when, I started to take classes.
I train people to dance and I try & let the rhythm move them. Sometimes I’d train as early as 3AM in the morning to attend to other things. I never let my mind get tired. Now as I reflect back, the times that I made people try and move their bodies through dance has made me feel alive like never before. It makes you open up to the realization that your feet & arms can let you into the fantasy world of your life.
I enjoy the extravagance of being my in-most self when I dance. And I aspire to help people build courage as they learn to dance their way thorugh life conquering all fear. They’re never again afraid of breaking. That’s when they’re more than dancers, they are Supersaiyans.
Do I get tired…yes. Do I give up..NO!
