Just 4 Funk

One of the most diverse, talented Crews in the UK!! Just 4 Funk travel around the world competing at breakdance events but are based in the South West. Check out this amazing show which showcases Hip Hop skills including breakin’ (breakdance), popping, beatboxing and more! If you are lucky you might even be picked to get up on stage and get involved!

Just 4 Funk have been working with ExElle Agency to provide an interactive show for one of the clients @ Glastonbury Festival

This is an approx 45m long show with a host, human beatboxer, breakdancers and body poppers. The show is split into several sections each focusing on a different skill and threaded together by the host. The sections include breakdance/popping choreography with flips, tricks and spins, a story section narrated/acted by human beatboxing and several audience participation sections including an audience dance battle and an audience beatbox orchestra.

The choreography/ stage movements can be easily adapted to any stage type and size since it is linked together by the host and beatboxer!

I have been a professional dancer for 15 years. I have been able to work for some fantastic people over the years and make great connections in the industry. Since having a baby I have been able to share these connections and pass on shows to fellow dancers.

I started an agency which began pushing women in hip hop. The agency progressed to represent all kinds of amazing dancers, especially from my home city. I believe in the creativity and talent that comes from Bristol. I aim to provide world class dancers with professionalism.

The purpose of the agency is to pass on opportunities that I have had myself. All dancers will be of a high standard and will provide a professional performance on and off stage. Every single one of the dancers I send to shows are all professional freestylers and are currently performing and doing competitions in the international circuit! So they are definitely ahead of the game and such a spectacle to watch.

In the past I have danced for or provided dancers for Rudimental, Pharrel Williams Jessica Sutta, Chic, Barry Gibb, Glastonbury Festival, Adidas, BBC, Sony, Hobbs Fashion Show, Laid Blak, House of Waladeen, Breakin Convention and many more. This year with my new agency I have already provided dancers for BBC Ceebeebies Huawei P30 mobile phone launch, Opa, Glastonbury 2019 and local artists.

I am able to provide BBOYS/Bgirl’s, hip hop dancers, ballerinas, hip hop dancers, house dancers and body poppers or club dancers ! The shows can be freestyled or choreographed. If your company needs a particular theme we are able to tailor shows to a particular theme. Below are some of the shows that have been booked by Ex-Elle dancers this year.

My first run since giving birth

 

So I wrote last week that I would be attempting my first run since giving birth and having an emergency c-section! So here goes….

The dr told me to start with a light jog to see how I get on. The scariest part for me was actually leaving Sereia as I haven’t done that before! I was excited to try the run though as I know how important it is to keep fit and healthy for both me and my baby!

Needless to say I got on my fitness gear which fit pretty snug to say the least lol! Since I wore it last I defo got some more chunk to squeeze into it! No room and the sports bra was like wearing armour! But I was happy to still fit into my old Lycra’s lol!

Sadly the images below are not me, I cannot take the credit!

I have made a little video so I won’t write much today as I don’t want to repeat myself, but have a little look at my first workout. First run in 9 months. I hope there can be something useful in there for you 🤪

I really enjoyed it!!!! Felt like a beginner but it was blooming lovely 😊

Had two stops and ran pretty slow so lots of room for improvement! Only way is up! Yaaaaaaaasss !! No matter how much you do, just try, because starting is the most important thing and from there everything is growth. Don’t worry about how you will do just adjust as you go and listen to yourself.

I always say worrying is like a rocking chair. You are moving but not going anywhere. So get moving and go somewhere!

Anyway here’s my post workout review below! And a few pics of along the way!

To conclude

🔒Don’t limit yourself with your thoughts and worry. A journey begins with just one step and the only way from there is forwards. As the great Lao Tzu says…

👙Wear a supportive bra! We don’t need these boobies ending up down south!

🐂Breastfeed before so they are empty and more comfortable

💦Drink lots of fluid.

🥅Take your time and set a goal.

🥳Be kind to yourself and celebrate your achievements not matter how small.

🧁Your muffin tops wont be there forever!

📲Record your results so you can monitor progress and make relevant goals

👶🏽It may be hard to leave your baby but try to take at least 30minutes to work on your health. A healthy body mind and soul is not only beneficial and crucial for you but also for your baby

🤪Have fun!

🍀And get outside, it’s good for the soul.

🙏🏼Thank you for your time! Let me know what you 💭 tmw I will add a video of some strengthening exercises! But here’s a start ❤️

Nothing but love 💕
