THE D.R.E.A.M. RING

REGGIE GRAY AND FLEXN
Concept by Reggie Gray

The foundation of FLEX is the bruk-up, which came out of Jamaican dancehall in the early 90s. Bruk-up means "broke up", and that means moving your body in all types of awkward ways, even the faces that we make. We dance from a place of the soul; it's emotion-based. It can be graceful, it can be aggressive, it can be anything the dancer wants it to be. Flexing has different styles, like connecting, pausing, gliding, getting low, bone-breaking. But flexing is more than just a dance, it's a culture. The way we talk, the way we speak, the way we dress. - Reggie Gray
