Jan – Popping in Kyrgyzstan (Part 1)

| August 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

Jan Voinov is a 15 year old dancer from Kyrgyzstan, a country with a rapidly growing Hip Hop Culture. The video was filmed by Little Shao of Hip Hop Photography during a camp called “I’m a dancer” featuring dancers such as: Buddha Stretch from NYC, Hozin from Korea, Mamson from France, and J Roc from L.A.

I asked Little Shao how the video came about and here’s what he had to say:

“It was filmed at the camp and was made just like…Hey Jan, What are u doing now? Do you wanna make a video? Do you have 15 minutes so we can do something like a poppin freestyle? Then he said yeah of course!
So we made this really quick and I just created this story in order to avoid a single shot for the freestyle.
He is one of the most talented kids in Kyrgystan, and has been invited to R16 for popping and SDK for the locking contest. Jan is a hip hop dancer, bboy, locker, and popper with so many hidden skillz and he’s only 15 years old. At the end you can see Mamson, which I include as a guest and will feature him in part II.”
