Massive Monkees are "Seattle heroes" and "one of the most famous breaking crews in the world." But don't just take the Seattle Times' word for it. The crew earned their bona fides on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, coming in third place overall. They've also popped, locked, and deadbolted their limbs on stage with the likes of Jay-Z, Public Enemy, and 50 Cent, and their trophy case sports first-place prizes from Denmark, the UK, Japan, France, and Korea. The crew has been honored here at home, too; in 2004, Seattle mayor Greg Nickels dubbed April 26 "Massive Monkees Day."
Not content to hoard their skills, the Massive Monkees crew spearheads outreach and educational efforts in Seattle, teaching public classes and mentoring young people. Most of these programs take place at Massive Monkees' studio, The Beacon. Part of Storefronts Seattle's Creative Enterprise Program, The Beacon is a temporary facility. But with community support, it will become a permanent home for all-ages dance classes, a free after-school program, and special events—all guided by a vision of hip-hop and the arts as positive forces. During classes, dancers of all skill levels learn freezes and toprocks or get their hearts pumping with Zumba, funk dancing, and hip-hop/jazz fusion choreography.
