Jan Minarik ‘s Story:

People call me Jhony, my b-boy name is MC Jonald. I’m from Slovakia – Trencin. I started to dance when I was 6 and more specifically b-boying or breakdancing. When I was 11 years old I started with hip-hop and other dance styles as well. I got to dance thanks to my brother, who use to dance folklore. Once I started at home with my brother. He was already dancing at that time and put together a dance crew in Trencin. My brother took me to a dance lesson and since then I dance. My main motivation has changed throughout my dance life. Before it was because it was fun, later because I was the middle of the attention, and now, it’s the only way to escape from the reality and relax. In the beginning I was a mascot of the crew. They called our crew to perform, at the time there were 8 of us, from the age of 17 to 20 years old, and I was 6. When we arrived at the spot where we performed everyone did his dance part and then at the end of the performance it was my time to entertain. I did a headspin, two spins and I fell down. Everybody was excited because I was doing something not normal for child. I participated in many stage competitions/battles. Now I am teaching in two dance crews in Banovce (Slovakia). My motivation is that I can pass on something that makes me happy and that kids can like. My biggest dream is to be able to participate in an Eminem’s videoclip. Fear is supposed to push you forward and not to knock you to your knees.
