Ahern said both him and Sommo had been break dancing independently long before they met. Both students are dance majors and discovered they share the same interest in break dancing. “It’s not too often you find someone who’s passionate about it and has been doing it a while” Ahern said. Ahern said he grew up in a dance studio and has been classically trained in many different forms of dance. His interest in breakdancing came later when he was a freshman in high school.

Discovering inner meaning of Chinese classical dance
“It takes time and dedication from everybody involved” says Wu. “We work on this maybe nine to 10 hours a day. We wake at 8 we take basic training classes in classical dance beginning at 8:30 in the morning get a break then we have rehearsals from 2 to 5 and again from maybe 7 to 10. It doesn’t get boring but it does get tiring. Sometimes it’s so hard to wake up in the mornings. “But he believes in the program and takes it very seriously. “The thing is that (classical Chinese dance) emphasizes not only how your body looks and that includes your hands and your face but expressing your inner thoughts” he says.
