Rokas Saltenis (Bboy Rukus)

Bboy Rukus btc

My real name is Rokas but people always tend to spell it different ways. I was born in 1986 and I come from Vilnius, Lithuania.
I got into breakin’ (more commonly known as break-dance or breakdance or even breakdancing) in 2000 and since then it has become not only a means to express myself but more importantly the way of life. Over the last few years breakin’ has also happened to become a profession to me, which I’m quite grateful for since I don’t have to work in a warehouse anymore or become a president or a prime minister. What I’m grateful for the most though is the opportunity to live what I love most (I wasn’t trynna make it rhyme there, just so you know).

As far as my style or the way I break goes… well I guess a great deal of it is in the music to begin with. I always try to keep growing with my style so I never stay put but I guess that’s the case with any artist or even artform as a whole. I guess I could call myself an all-rounder – always be lacking and learning stuff – but I do incorporate different elements of bboying and outside to make my style look diverse; and I always aim for that complete flowing look… but judge it for yourselves when you see me dance.

Anyhow, I wouldn’t wanna expand on myself too much so if you have any questions or comments hit me up on myspace.com/r0kas; facebook or just send me an email to rokas.saltenis@gmail.com

Peace unity love and having fun
