After Islamabad, Red Bull BC One All Stars second workshop in Pakistan took place in Lahore on the 28th of June, 2013 at Shapes Health Studio. Visiting Pakistan for the first time, two of the world’s best B-Boys ‘Lilou and Pelezinho‘ took this opportunity to explore and experience the local B-Boy scene in the main cultural center of Pakistan.
After the registration process that took place on the same day from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm, 20 young B-Boys from Lahore showcased their B-Boying skills in front of their idols ‘Lilou and Pelezinho’. The workshop started with Lilou and Pelezinho’s one-on-one interaction with the B-Boys that was aimed at understanding and gathering information about the local B-Boy scene of Lahore. From 4-7pm, 20 Lahori B-Boys not only unveiled their B-Boying talent but also shared their knowledge with the two B-Boy Legends to further improve their skills. The 2 B-Boy Legends took this opportunity to share information and teach the young B-Boys new B-Boying skills.
The Red Bull BC One All Stars form a team of internationally renowned dancers. They represent the best of the best in the scene. Each of the seven crew members is an outstanding individual and brings a certain style, skill and move to the group — from hardcore powermoves to intricate footwork. Together they will showcase the art of B-Boying, teach and share their knowledge about Hip Hop culture and their incredible art form. Lilou and Pelezinho have been part of the Red Bull BC One, the world’s most important one-on-one B-Boy battle. Pelézinho from Brazil is the master of acrobatic and powerful moves and flips; his style includes elements of capoeira and samba. Cico, from Italy, represents Europe. He’s the “Prince of Power” and holds the world record in 1990’s where he rapidly spins in a one-armed handstand. Lilou, the officiating champion completes the crew; the B-Boy from France with Algerian roots is the only bboy to have won the Red Bull BC One twice. He is the story telling dancer, his funny but polarizing character and style never fail to engage the audience. Their years of experience along with exceptional skills and their humble personalities, entitle them to become ambassadors of their culture. They have proven their mastery and now their main goal is giving back to the community by spreading the message of Hip Hop culture, where being creative, disciplined and respectful are the most important things.
After Islamabad and Lahore, Lilou and Pelezinho will now head to Karachi; where the biggest B-Boy community resides in the country. The workshop in Karachi will take place on the 30th of June, 2013 at MAD School; details as follows:
