A Breaker based in London, Slick Johnny is a funky, extroverted, and confident alter-ego of the ordinary day-to-day Jhonny who is introverted, insecure, creative, and complex character. Slick Jhonny likes to turn Jhonny’s silliness and analysis into art. Breaking has led both to a journey of self-discovery, which started 13 years ago. Together they share a passion for Breaking and developed a style that finds emancipation through movement, inspiration from real-life or imaginary characters, and turns mistakes into an artform.
