"We'd made so many sacrifices in life – jobs, parents, our homes. You could do anything you wanted, but it wasn't anything we wanted to be. We wanted to be dancers."
Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray is a pioneer of street dance and the creator of the style known as Flex. Recognisable through such signature moves as pausing, gliding and bone breaking, the style emerged in New York out of an early ’90s Jamaican form of street dance called brukup. Gray and his dancers originally found fame through a television show called Flex N Brooklyn, which gave its name to the dance. For MIF15, Gray has recruited a young team of dancers from Manchester, MancFlex, to collaborate with him and the Flexers from New York.
