About Ill At Will dance crew, 2012 Canadian Ataxia Conference concert performers:

The Ill At Will dance crew performed at the first Canadian Ataxia Conference benifit concert in 2012. The did a break dance performance to the house music song "Maxed Out" by Cam Edmonds. They also opened the show with Sarah Smith, Roger Foley, and the Brute Beauties.

The members of Ill At Will that performed at "Bruteman Live!" philanthropy concert in 2012 were Jim Jihoon Han, Kyler Ayim, Rob Loebach, and Nickolaas van der Velde. Ill At Will's performances at the 2012 Canadian Ataxia Conference's concert was spectacular!

"Our dance is called Breaking, or B-boying, but it's also known as breakdancing. Breaking is one of the main elements of Hip Hop culture; other elements include rapping, turntablism (DJing), and graffiti art. We mostly dance to rap, funk, and breaks (drum sections of a song) but we'll go off to whatever makes our feet move!"

Ill at Will is a Canadian B-Boy (breakdance) crew formed in late August 2008. Our members are mainly from Ontario's 519 area with others from Toronto and Holland.

Ill at Will has organized numerous workshops and events for the local communities in Windsor and London, including a successful street dance competition at Centennial Hall London. We have also battled at competitions in New York, Michigan, Quebec, and around Ontario.

We do community workshops around the 519 area, teach youth through various dance studios, and travel to competitions in other cities to battle or help judge, representing London, Windsor, and Toronto's next generation of B-Boys.
