Dancing is a natural thing these days, and even those who are scared of dancing make up for it by going to Zumba classes. However, how does it feel to balance your torso on a single arm while your legs move in continuous circles? For David Jerome, it took one and half years of dedication and practice to get this move, known as Flare, right.


Breakdance, or breaking, as it’s now referred to, is a form of dance, and those who pursue it are called breakers or B-boy or B-girl. While it originated in the ’70s, you can understand it is both a challenging and gravity-defying dance form that is surely more than just dance.


In the tradition, the breakers go by different stage names, and Jerome is known as ‘B-boy Shadow.’ The word shadow comes from the lyrics of his favorite song, Beggin, by the Norwegian musical duo – Madcon.


Jerome was not drawn to dance naturally. It was when he saw his sister and her crew called ‘Proximity’ practice breaking that he was drawn towards this physically demanding dance form. He says when he makes his moves, he feels like a superhero. He is now part of Proximity and is part of multiple events representing the crew.


The now popular breaker learned his moves from YouTube videos and confessed that he watched them time and again an innumerable number of times way back in 2011. And to do his bit for breaking, Jerome works in a corporate company and also teaches those interested and those who have the right moves. After winning several times in the city and around the country, he says he wants to compete in more ciphers and win them.


The city in total has only three breaking events – Blame it on the Boogie, Cypher Hours and Spit your Game. The 11th edition of Cypher Hours will be hosted on June 25 and June 26.
