spartanic rockers

spartanic rockers are tokyos most famous breakdance crew. with spartanic stealth, they navigate themselves through international breakdance battles. founded in 1986 in switzerland, they have got a crew in tokyo since 1997, started by takeo (pictured). The spartanics won the international battle of the year 1998 for best show. because of strong police presence in tokyo, it is extra difficult to find good training ground on the streets. the only place to admire breakdance newcomers is the mitaki square in shibuya in the evenings. takeo also runs dance studio faith. after the last ballet lesson has finished, the spartanic rockers take over between 23.00 and 02.00. every friday, they train at dance studio wing.
