Community Stories: Massive Monkees -- The Beacon (trailer)

The Massive Monkees' roots date back to the mid-90s with a group of kids bonding around a love of hip-hop and dance at a local rec center. After winning world championships and achieving many other accolades in the break dance community, the Seattle crew opened its own dance studio, The Beacon, where they teach, mentor and inspire people of all ages.
