Skill@Will crew has solidified themselves as one of most elite and accomplished breaking crews in Australian breaking history. Competing at the highest level of competition and performing on stages all around the world, they have gained a reputation that proceeds them. Based in Brisbane Queensland and established in 2002, their career has spanned over nearly 2 decades and with most members still active today and fresh recruitments, there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
In 2005 less than three years after forming, Skill@Will won the Australasian Bboy Championships in Sydney hosted by Ice-T (hip hop music icon, Law & Order SUV) and judged by the legendary Ken Swift (Rock Steady Crew) earning them the opportunity as one of the top 16 crews from around the world to compete at the UK World Bboy Championships held in London later that year. In the years to follow, Skill@Will built their legacy claiming numerous titles some of which still remain undisputed.
Founding member Rohan McAlinden aka Bboy Versastyle has also held the longest running training and teaching ground for bboys and bgirls in Australia to date, holding an annual training session and class every Saturday at Fortitude Valley PCYC in Brisbane for over 20 years. Rohan and other members of the crew continue to teach regularly between Brisbane and the Gold Coast at various locations, sharing their knowledge and experience to students of all ages helping to shape the next generation of hip hop culture enthusiasts.
Although most members reside permanently in Australia many of Skill@Will’s members are from various backgrounds including countries such as; Czech Republic, Japan, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Columbia and Switzerland.
