Hip-hop culture with the Massive Monkees
Community Stories: Massive Monkees -- The Beacon

The famed Massive Monkees breakdance crew started in the mid-nineties as a group of kids bonding together at a local community center around a love of hip-hop and dance. After winning world championships and achieving many other accolades in the breakdance community, the Seattle crew now runs its own studio, The Beacon, where they teach, mentor, and inspire people of all ages. Crew members recount their path from after-school dance classes to international stages and back home to their dance studio in the International District, a haven for the positive influence of hip-hop culture.
