    February 8, 2014, one of the biggest events in the Bay Area has finally came back to challenge the break dancers, or known as, B-boys around the Bay Area to go against each other.

    Cypher cup VII brought success to a few of the students at American High School.

    “It’s an amazing experience that toughens you up in order to actually be on par next time around,” senior Lai said.

     “It wasn’t only a great experiences but i learned so much from other B-boys who been dancing for so many years.”

     “It made me stronger but at the same time, it also messed up my wrist,” Lai said. “Messing my wrist up, it gave me a better understanding on how it is to dance.”

 American High School alumni, Thomas Chu, judges Cupertino’s Cypher Cup performance, a showcase for his fellow dancers. He is part of the well known crew, Gorilla Warefare, of the bay area.

    A great event brought not only students who are currently enrolled, but also brought former American High Student Jordan Miraflor and Thomas Chu.

    “ I felt overwhelmed and honored to be dancing with them and keeping up the AHS bboy legacy for them” said Lai.

    When the showcase was over they then pulled the top sixteen out to all compete each other.

     “I  didn’t even think I’d make it so I felt a sudden rush of adrenalin and was very proud of myself,” Lai said.

    Almost making it to the very top has brought the AHS B-boys all winners that night to not only Alvin and his partner, but also to Josh Santor and Sean Acidera known as DoomsDay, Gabe Torres and his partner known as DumOnes, and Ricky Ho and Jomari Buenaflor known as DownBeats. WIn or lose, American High bboys are winners at heart.
