Monster Energy’s Third Episode of Dream Circles Introduces Us to Miguel Rosario AKA Gravity, Olympic Bound Gymnast Turned B-Boy Extraordinaire. Out Now
Monster Energy’s third episode of Dream Circles introduces us to Miguel Rosario, respectively known as “Gravity” in the breakdancing world. Like B-boy Moy, who we met in the last two episodes, Miguel is one of twelve breakers sponsored by Monster Energy. The latest episode debuts on November 23rd and showcases Miguel Rosario’s transition from a championship gymnast to a world-renowned breaker set to take the Olympics in 2024.
Miguel Rosario, a Long Island City native, started as an all-around gymnast at a young age. At sixteen he had already won state championships, and regional championships and taken home over twelve first-place medals. Miguel admits that he started to get bored with winning and being inspired by the 2004 dance film You Got Served, he began to explore the world of breaking. In 2006, at the age of sixteen, Miguel recorded his first breakdancing video with two of his friends. The moment he decided to quit gymnastics was critical because he had just received a call to be a part of the 2012 Olympics which he declined.
A complete full-circle moment, Miguel is now making his way to the 2024 Olympics as one of the most influential breakers in the world. “That was the foundation to my breaking. Because of that discipline, I was able to bring that into breaking and I elevated faster than anybody can imagine…what took people ten years to accomplish, I was doing in three. If it wasn’t for gymnastics, I would not have been able to set the bar” says Miguel.
“He’s actually the first one I’ve seen do a roundoff back double in a battle, dude is light on his feet and he’s not afraid,” exclaims breakdance legend Ken Swift.
With over 15 years of experience in breaking, including competitions, teaching, and acting, Miguel has lived his dream of becoming a world-class sponsored competitor. He’s won over ten international world titles in the USA, China, Poland, Holland, Japan, and Korea and over eighty national titles.
