HOW THEY STARTED
Just group of friends that loved to hang out with eachother at b-boy practices, dance at clubs, and any other place they could throw down. Taste of the Danforth, an annual Greek street event is basically what started it all. During this festival, the same group of friends showed up and started dancing in the street for fun. Within seconds a big crowd gathered around to watch. This motivated them to put out a hat and collect money from the audience as they enjoyed every moment of this random street performance.
10 minutes later the show was stopped by the police. The crowd didn't like that at all, so they started to boo and really show their disappointment in the interrupted performance. The officer explained that in order to do shows like this, each person must obtain a permit.
After that, Co-founding member StuntZ was so motivated by this that he researched ways on how to do a proper street show. It was in 2005 when things really started to pick up. Co-founding member Tracer 1 brought his boombox, joined StuntZ and together they got permits to perform their first show on concrete beside the Eatons Center. Still not fully certain on how to do shows they researched some more. During this time co-founding member Troublez was already doing some shows with another crew and as a result he had a more solid idea on how to street perform. Troublez also managed to get a free piece of linoleum and as a result all 3 co-founding members joined forces to create the new crew, Conkrete Stylez!
As time went along many dancers saw Conkrete Stylez perform their show and wanted to join the crew. They have had members come and go as a result of other commitments but every year, Conkrete Stylez still manages to improve and impress their audiences till this day.
