Beto "Mooncricket" Lopez has been dancing since he can walk. His parents always had parties since he was born from the 70s and through out his high school years his parents threw dance parties for him and his friends. His parents were aways as cool as he was on the dance floor. Beto's father was voted best dancer in 1968 in the San Francisco High School he attended. Beto grew up listening to his fathers records from the mid 70s to the early 90s. As soon as he could walk he was already dancing and loved dancing at family weddings for the spot light. James Brown was his biggest influence growing up and of course by the time Michael Jackson stepped into the scene Beto was just like everyone else trying to learn every step. Beto would blob Blue Magic hair jell to slick and shine his hair like Michael and get in trouble by his father trying to look like a pop star on his way to school. Beto would entertain his school mates and neighbors everyday to Michael and all the classic hip-hop music he would collect.
Beto started popping in 1981 shortly after he moved to California near the bay area. Everyone in the school yard was doing this dance and they all saw that Beto already had James Brown moves. Beto fell in love with Hip-hop and popping, Boogaloo dance and by the time it was 1983 he saw Dynamic Rockers on a TV show called "That's Incredible". They were doing head spins, foot work, freezes and back spins. When him his friends went back to school they all new this was the new dance. With confusion seeing popping and breaking on TV being mixed he would pop and break at the same time like most California kids.
