The 31-year-old break­dance world cham­pion and chore­og­ra­pher’s life is as ex­cit­ing as a hip-hop dance movie. Vol­ca­noes are in­volved

Nabeel Al Khayer’s life re­volves around b-boy­ing, but beaches and lunch dates with friends are in or­der on week­ends.

FRI­DAY ROU­TINE For me, Fri­day is the best day of the week. It starts with morn­ing pray­ers, then I go back to sleep for a lit­tle bit and af­ter that I hit the swim­ming pool and work out. I then get ready for mid­day pray­ers; the five pray­ers are the rhythm of my days. I spend Fri­day af­ter­noons at break­ing [dance] prac­tice, af­ter which I chill with friends over a late lunch or cof­fee at The Walk JBR.


The world of b-boy­ing and hip-hop dance does have crews like they show in movies such as Step Up. Hu­man be­ings need to be around a com­mu­nity, it’s rare to see some­one reach his/ her goals alone. The ri­val­ries ex­ist too and we al­ways need them be­cause ri­vals boost progress. These are healthy ri­val­ries, un­like in the movies where peo­ple are try­ing to pull each other down.
