When I looked at people breakdancing when I was younger I thought ‘I could do that’ and then proceed to make a fool of myself and embarrass who ever I was with as I flailed about the floor in, an often drunken, mess. Nowadays I have much more respect for the art of Breaking, for myself and the company I choose to keep. I now simply watch in awe as the dancers pull of impossible looking moves with ease. In a nutshell Breaking is incredibly hard and requires a lot of dedication and practice to make it look so easy.

There are many crews out there all deserving of respect but none stand out to me as much as the ILL – Abilities crew. These guys are not your average dancers. Not only are they off the charts amazing, they are all differently – abled. Rather than talking about having disabilities they use the term ILL-Abilities

“The ‘ill’ does not refer to ‘sick’ or ‘unwell’ but rather to incredible, amazing, intricate, talent,” they write on their website. “Rather than seeing the negative limitations of ‘disability,’ this crew focuses on their positive, or ‘ill,’ abilities.”

Not only are they insane breakers they also teach their own classes and host their own breakdancing competition for differently – abled dancers.

They are full of positivity and don’t let their different physical challenges get in the way of their passion. In fact they have used their physical differences in a way that has raised tried and tested Breaking moves to a whole new level. These guys bring a new meaning to the word inspirational and make me think that perhaps it’s not too late for me to pursue my dream of learning a few moves.

The ILL-Abilities crew consists of:

  • Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli (Canada)
  • Tommy “Guns” Ly (U.S.A)
  • Jacob “Kujo” Lyons (U.S.A)
  • Redouan “Redo” Ait Chitt (The Netherlands)
  • Sergio “Checho” Carvajal (Chile)
  • Jung Soo “Krops” Lee (South Korea)
  • Samuel Henrique “Samuka” da Silveira Lima (Brazil)
  • Lucas “Perninha” Machado (Brazil)
