MY FABULOUS FRIDAY
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.
