22-year-old Johanna Rodrigues aka B-Girl Jo is the winner of the 5th edition of Red Bull BC One Cypher India 2019, that happened at the Bandra Fort Amphitheatre in Mumbai. She competed against Flowraw in the final of the break dancing competition.

She will now compete at their respective Last Chance Cypher battles at the Red Bull BC One World Final in Mumbai in November, for a chance to fill the final spot in the top 16 at the B-Boy and B-Girl championships.

“I feel really motivated. With the finals coming up, I have a good few months to train,” she told Metrolife.

In preparation for the finals, Johanna is focusing on learning new moves, execution and getting stronger. 

Also a yoga instructor, she only started to pursue dance only a few years ago. “I attended a jam in 2013, and I was blown away by the movement in breaking. That’ when I decided to pursue it.”

Johanna also aims to be a movement therapist.
