Boogie Frantick

My brother Ricardo “Boogie Frantick” Rodriguez Jr. is one of the illest poppers/dancers out there, definitely.KEEPINTIGHT. as one of my Top 5 favorites. I chatted him up a bit in an interview, FunnyBones Por Vida! 

Boogie Frantick is sporting Panic 39. Cop Panic @ http://www.curbservin.com/

1. What LXD episodes are you featured in?

And

2. When did you start dancing?
A. Poppin?
I started to dance when I was 3 years old from what my mother has shared. I had that new jack flava lol. But poppin, well that I came across when I was 9 years old..
3. Who’s your OG/original teacher?
I never really had a teacher but there was really only one guy who helped me the most and I consider him more of a mentor. He is Zulu King DJ Hazze.
4. What dancer out there inspires you the most?
I would have to say every one that I have worked with. Mostly (inspiration comes from) the BBoyz though to be honest. These guys are machines in human form and not robotic but their body’s can take so much stress and they train so freakin hard… But I’ve worked with so many styles From Contemporary to Krump all have their own way of technique and its amazing how crazy these people are when the music turns on.
5. Do you teach regularly? When & where?
I really don’t teach but I help in any way I can. I’m working on something for next year. I would love to do like a tour or something but I still have a lot to figure out when it comes to my style. Only because it is so free. I mostly train people out of my own home though. It’s more of a practice session where I get to test their might. Push their mental game to new limits and show them how much more the mind can expand when it comes to different styles of music.
6. What crews are you affiliated with & are you the founder of any of them?
I am from: Zulu Kings, Gstyle and Funnybones Crew. I still affiliate with Air Force Crew, Whiz Kidz Wrecking Krew, and will always support Skill Methodz which I had to walk out of due to a conflict of interest, but I am still family just not from the crew anymore.
7. What commercials/movies/music videos have you done besides LXD?

8. Do you have groupies!? Bwahahahaha! How you liking that?
OMG… I honestly don’t know even though I do hear that I am some favorites and the Club I perform at. But I do not go out to seek I keep it dance and rock the show! I appreciate any support to the fullest. Even phone numbers lol…
9. What do you want to say to all dancers out there?
STAY HUMBLE TO OTHERS AND TO YOURSELF. DO NOT THINK YOU ARE ABOVE ANYONE ELSE. SOMEONE ALWAYS NEEDS A HAND OR SOME KIND OF INSPIRATION. JUST BECAUSE SOME OF US HAVE WORKED LONGER DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE BETTER. SHARE THE INFO OR SEEK THE INFO TO SHARE. NEVER LIMIT YOURSELF TO ONE STYLE ALWAYS MAKE TIME TO GROW AND NEVER WORRY ABOUT WHAT LOOKS WRONG JUST WORRY ABOUT HOW YOU CAN MAKE IT LOOK BETTER. KEEP IT REAL, KEEP IT RAW, SHUT UP AND DANCE!!
10. What kind of music do you get down to most? What is your favorite style of music? Who are your favorite bands/singers/producers?
EVERYTHING!! I am not kidding yo. I have Classical, Dubstep, Reggae, Metal, Oldies, Trip Hop, Leftfield, DrumNBass, Soul, R&B, Funk, Classic Rock, Jazz, AfroCuban, Hip Hop and Rap, IDM, geesh so much I cannot remember lol…
