Philly's Breakdancing Family


I met Aaron and his kids when they got off the subway near my house. My wife pointed them out to me and said, "that's Crowd Pleaserz, the family that breakdances together on the subway". I ran down the street to ask if I could interview them for a story, and the next day I joined them for two and a half hours going up and down Broad Street on Septa's Orange Line.

What I want people to see is how happy these children are; happy to have an audience, happy to express themselves creatively & especially happy to spend hours each day with their father, brothers and uncle. They are incredibly talented, the youngest, bboy fun-size is only 4 years old and can dance better than anyone I know, on a moving train going 60 miles an hour.
