Blacka’s World: Creating the #FollowThruChallenge

Words by Blacka Di Danca

Mundo-Ravers

Fans of dancehall know Ricardo “Mundo” Gordon– aka Mundo Ravers– as a leader of the influential dance crew Ravers Clavers, and the creator of such dances as “Sassa Step” and “Follow Thru.” After years of going to battle for dancehall, Mundo is now fighting a critical war of his own, having been diagonsed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering system, causing serious scarring.

It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to write a “Blacka’s World” column here on LargeUp but I promise I will be updating you on my work more often. Recently I’ve been teaching weekly online dancehall courses for free on my YouTube channel, planning my upcoming fall tour, opening up stage shows like LargeUp’s Chronixx SummerStage event in Central Park, choreographing music videos and creating new dance moves! I may have been quiet, but I’ve definitely been busy! Today I have an opportunity for all dancers in or around NYC! And what’s the point of an opportunity, if you don’t share it?

Not everyone can make it out to a dance class. Some people need a babysitter, some people are too nervous to dance in front of others, some work too many hours a day, and some just don’t have the money for it. So I decided to teach online… for FREE!
