BUBBLIN CREW 2010
Bubblin’ Crew is a seven-member dance crew that promotes authentic Jamaican dancehall and dancehall culture in Finland. They are representing the street style crew dancing in the Finnish dancehall scene.
Being in a crew is about friendship, teamwork and enjoying the dance. The group was formed in the beginning of 2010, almost accidentally, out of people with lots of difference in age, dance experience, dancehall knowledge. Along the years the group has evolved a lot and reached current and final form: the founder and leader Bubblin’ Breezes, original member Zuzan, and members since late 2011 Sophia and Emma, since 2015, Wilma. 2016 new member Aino joined the crew and in the spring 2017 Suvi joined the crew after being featuring in the group in various dance contests.
Out of respect for the foundation and culture behind the dance, they have been traveling to Jamaica at least once a year, since the start. Going to the source to learn is essential for them, they can’t really see how they could do this any other way. They have been practising with the best, like Rifical Team, Elite Team, Black Eagles, Latonya Style, First Class dancers, Mystic Davis, Shady Squad, Supreme Blazers, John Bling, M.O.B., BG Dancerz, Ghetto Legacy, Freshh Kidds, Collo Squad, to mention some.
Bubblin’ Crew is focusing on the “unisex moves” (in contrast to their name!), but they do do the girl styles also, not forgetting the acrobatic tricks. They love to build their shows around particular themes and have a story in them.
Bubblin’ Breezes is the leader and main choreographer of the group. She has spent the most time in Kingston, practising and learning the culture behind the dance. She is the founder, owner and main teacher of Bubblin’ Moves “The dancehall school”. Her work is a huge reason why the dancehall dance scene has been growing exponentially in Finland, and especially in Helsinki. There is now a vibrant community called Bubblin’ Family which includes Bubblin’ Crew, Queens of ******* Everything (crew) and Bubblin Moves students.
