Rockin' The Elements 2006 was an event to put on by Mooncricket Films & the Termites Crew of Stockton, CA.
This event is part of The Bboy Connection film and to help spread the word of not just the film but to educate to the new generation in the Stockton community what real hip-hop is & it's history. Bboys & bgirls came from all over the country with only 5 weeks notice after the event was announced through social media. They came as far as Japan, Hawaii, Miami, New York, Denver and from all over California & Los Angeles. They came for a battle but also came to see all elements in one building. I have been filming many legend bboys from New York for many years and I wanted to make sure that people can see the legends who created these dance moves in person. King Up Rock rock dance legend was teaching dance classes and we had the first big rock dance battle. The rocking classes and battle inspired many new rockers and ever since this day the dance has grown world wide. Ken Swift brought his rocking crew and Jo Jo the founder of Rock Steady crew & creator of the back spin brought joy to the young and older dancers. Affion Crockett was our host before he became a movie star and he would be down to be there again since he is still a bboy.
Rockin The Elements was such a success the demands for another one comes to my emails, youtube and facebook messages every month for the last 4 years. Once we are able to get a budget and sponsors we will bring it back for sure. This is the event that I plan to continue on a larger scale once the film is complete as The Bboy Connection tour.
Once I find the original finals I will re-upload the original HD video. At this time youtube was not HD ready but the entire event was shot in HD.
