UCSBreakin’ to Compete This Weekend


“You feel very alive when dancing,” said Alick Xu, current president of UCSBreakin’, the campus breakdancing club that was founded in 2010. “It’s combining an adrenaline rush and fitness into one, and you can push your limits so far.” The club’s more than 20 active members practice their moves twice a week at Robertson Gym along with unofficial sessions that they announce through social media. After creating an audition video, the team was chosen to participate in Schools for Fools, an intercollegiate breaking competition that takes place this Saturday, April 9, in Pomona. These B-boys (and girls) will put their skills to the test against groups from 12 different colleges.
