Misti, aka Bgirl Dura, began breakin’ her freshman year in college in 2001 after she realized her strong love for hip-hop culture in the late 1990’s. She was one of the original members of a student organization at the University of Florida called the Hip-Hop Collective. From 2002 until 2012 she was very active in the hip-hop community as she traveled to compete as well as played a heavy role in the local community by helping organize hip-hop battles and constantly offering to share her talents by performing and teaching. Misti is also a personal trainer and a lover of all movement. She continues to practice breakin’ currently and has recently begun training in other hip hop styles including poppin’, waacking, and locking. Misti is excited to share her skills and energy and hoping to inspire young people to use dance as a creative outlet for a lifetime.
