There are so may projects on the independent fundraising site Kickstarter that are worthy of our financial support, but only once in a while does the trailer for one address an art form that you don’t see much of along with the stories of the often-ignored black men who practice it.
Flex Is Kings is about the form of street dance called “flexing,” a sort Vogue-ish, pop-lock-y, slow wine and drama-based form of dance with a gritty edge. You may have seen the Jamaican dancehall inspired dance form on America’s Best Dance Crew or heard it referred to as “bone-breaking.” Flex Is Kings shows both the unique nature of flexing and chronicles the everyday lives and inner aspirations of a handful of flex dancers.

The project is still in development, so if you liked what you saw learn more about it here and consider supporting its completion.
