Baby BGirls to Olympic Beating Airflares at Famfest

Famfest's celebration of hiphop dance in Wynwood last weekend featured everything from tiny aspiring BBoys and BGirls moving their bitty behinds to spectacular dancer-athletes spinning through the air (including a move called the Airflare adopted by Olympic gymnasts.) Famfest, organized by Miami breakdance pioneers Rudi Goblen and the Flipside Kings at the Miami Light Project's Light Box at Goldman Warehouse, may have featured a dance contest, but it was also a party for hiphop culture and how dance grows from one generation to the next.
