Neumos was packed on Aug. 5 for the grand finale of Circle of Fire’s 20 Year Anniversary Celebration. All week long, Seattle’s original breakdancing club crew had staged parties, workshops and get-togethers, and the finale’s stellar lineup of live musicians, DJs and dancers, like the one pictured here, brought out fans and compatriots old and new. The night was capped by a ceremony inducting new members into the crew, ensuring the Circle of Fire legacy will live on.

“It doesn’t take a whole lot to ignite this type of energy. It just takes a little spark, and then it starts feeding itself, and the next thing you know, everyone’s just going wild, getting crazy.” —Lateef Sale’em, Circle of Fire
