The Company is back from it’s hiatus and the summer has officially come to an end. Here are some highlights from the last few months:

 

From July 27th to August 12th Mantis and and Flonetik visited Paris, Slovakia and Netherlands to attend two of the most well know breaking events in Europe, known as Outbreak and the Notorious IBE. They also took time to visit family and friends. Big shout outs to B-girl Hurricane who invited them to her practice spot just outside Paris and to Willy from Soul Mavericks who brought them to hip hop Huis. Mantis was the runner up in the finals of the “Return of the B-Girl" Battle at IBE versus B-Girl Mad Max who won first place, congrats to them both!

 

Kid Break and Styleski took the win at several competitions this summer.

July 22nd they teamed up for a 3v3 at "Brooklyn's Finest Kids Vol.1" and beat some tough competition for first place. 

Sept 9th they entered and won the 1v1 and 3v3 categories at Kids of New York. They competed in the 3v3 with Concrete Monkey, Styleski entered the 10 and over category and Kid Break entered the 10 and under category.

Congratulations to Kid Break and Styleski!
