With almost 20k Twitter followers and 20k Facebook followers respectively, it’s easy to see why so many people are crazy about Jean Carlos Lloret, better known as B-Boy Bebo. From his infectious smile and magnetic personality to his unmistakable talent, one minute with him and I was hooked too. Our shoot was reminiscent of my years living in New York City where I immersed myself in the club scene witnessing raw talent emerge in the streets and on the dance floors of underground clubs throughout the five boroughs.
It also reminded me of one of the reasons I started photographing dancers in the first place. It’s that feeling that you get when you watch someone doing something that you love, something that they love, something that they are really really good at. It’s an undeniable energy that gets inside you.
Since he ImAgInEd it, this self-taught B-Boy’s star has continued to rise. Some of his many credits include the movie Step Up 4, America’s Best Dance Crew Season 6, and So You Think You Can Dance (check out Mary Murphy's reaction to his audition!) Most recently he performed with Austin Mahone on the 2013 VMAs and had the honor of representing his Latino culture on the 2013 Alma Awards.
