Klondike Heat - Cypher for Change

Earlier this month, July 15th-18th, the national breakdancing forum Cypher For Change Information took place in Whitehorse, Yukon. According to its website, this gathering and networking of over forty b-boys and b-girls from around Canada seeks, “to inspire youth to make differences in their own community.”Along with the visiting artists were guest speakers Stephen “Buddha” Leafloor (Canadian Floor Masters and Blueprint for Life), Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli (IllmaticStyles and Illabilities) and Michael “Piecez” Prosserman (M.E.C. and Unity). Also among the guest judges and workshop leaders were Wicket (Renegades Crew and Footwork Fanatix), Kid David (Renegades Crew, The Squadron and Break Disciples) and Easy Roc (Rocksteady Crew).While this trailer video offers a glimpse at the 2009 gathering, new YouTube videos are popping up with footage of this year’s events.Check out the video below for two recent clips.
