Nonstop Motion Could Be Your Downfall | Lando Wilkins
Episode of
Kinjaz PodKast
This week we have dancer, choreographer, and toy designer @landowilkins in the pod! Lando is a vet in the urban dance community. From his early days on @twotwentyteam, to @sgbmsd all the way to @moswantedcrew, Lando has been in the scene for a cool minute. Being known for his unique movement style, Lando quickly made a name for himself for his choreography and freestyle. He talks about how he found his own identity as a mover and how it has evolved over the years. More than looking at dance as an end, he explains how it’s actually a means to an end. Lando is an artist to the core. He unpacks how he appreciates the artistry in the things he locks into. While dance is still very much a part of Lando’s life, he has shifted his focus for dance to be geared more towards education and mindset training.    As a constant student of the arts, Lando has been making quite a name for himself in the toy culture as @uncleskro. Listen in as he opens up his mentality towards growth and evolution. Another in-depth look into a genius mind.   https://www.instagram.com/landowilkins/    https://www.instagram.com/uncleskro/   https://www.instagram.com/moswantedcrew/    — SPONSORS — Audible Free Trial: https://www.kinjazpodkast.com/audible   www.MSTRWATCHES.COM Discount Code: KINJAZPOD  25% OFF ENTIRE PURCHASE   KIN Aesthetik www.store.kinjaz.com Discount Code: PODKAST 15% OFF ENTIRE PURCHASE   — SHOW NOTES —   (5:01) - 220 Dance - https://www.instagram.com/twotwentydance    (5:18) - Kevin Brewer - https://www.instagram.com/tao_of_beatkunedo SGBM - https://www.instagram.com/sgbmsd    (5:33) - Super Galactic Beat Manipulators @ Culture Shock San Diego Choreographer’s Festival 2006 - https://youtu.be/-JyBnKY1qBI   (6:17) - Developing your own style   (7:20) - Freestyle Session - http://www.freestylesession.com   (10:00) ABDC Season 3 “Boxcuttuhz” - https://americasbestdancecrew.fandom.com/wiki/Boxcuttuhz              ABDC Season 7 “Mos Wanted Crew” - https://abdc.fandom.com/wiki/Mos_Wanted_Crew   (14:25) - Beginnings of toy design - https://www.instagram.com/uncleskro    (19:45) - Entering the international freestyle battle scene   (22:45) - A shift in focus   (25:22) - S.O.S. “Sense Of Self” - https://www.instagram.com/p/BzY2q_opLR3/?igshid=ecpai2k6jfau   (35:45) - The key to adaptability   (41:21) - The value of listening   (43:08) - Growth happens when you slow down   (45:40) - Thoughts on inspiration   (49:40) - Balancing art and commerce   (54:20) - You have to put in just as many hours as any other job, if not, more   (1:01:13) - Success   (1:07:10) - LIGHTNING ROUND   (1:11:50) - Golden Rule   (1:18:08) - https://www.uncleskro.com Rad Retro Power - https://www.instagram.com/radretropower      — SHOW CREDITS —   Host/Producer: Ben Chung - https://www.instagram.com/btek_benchung Producer: Mike Fallorina - https://www.instagram.com/mikefal Producer: Jeremy Lai - https://www.instagram.com/jdl2012    https://www.kinjaz.com/podkast https://www.kinjazpodkast.com https://www.instagram.com/kinjazpodkast https://www.twitter.com/kinjazpodkast https://www.facebook.com/kinjazpodkast
