Bgirl Shorty is My Ninja!

One thing I have learned more than anything from blogging Freak The Fashion is that “creative” people are multi-talented.  They don’t just dance or design clothes or do photography… they also sing, play an instrument, deejay, etc.  For example, Lady Jules’ acting abilities match that of her dancing (and that’s saying a lot).

Week 1: Din Daa Daa?  We know they are amazing dancers.  Week 2: Independent?  We find out how strong they really are.  Britney Spears Week 3: Womanizer?  “The World was not ready for that.”  This performance in particular was one of their (many) breakout performances. I usually qualify my statements with “arguably” or “in my … Continue reading

Boom Boom Boombox

It’s pretty obvious that if The Beat Freaks have an official mascot, it would  have to be the boombox.  It’s in their logos, Freak The Dream performance, and a prominent fixture in their photos.  The ghetto blaster is often recognized as a symbol bringing it back to the old school days of Breakin’ and Electric … Continue reading
