Dancer David Adams grew up in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago in a family of movers - dancers, musicians, and athletes. Influenced by choreographers of the 1980s, especially those who developed bboy repertoires in the breakdancing films of the era, he came of age as a club dancer at Medusa’s, listening to resident DJs like Psychobitch and Terri Bristol, and later evolved his club dancing practice at Red Dog and Smart Bar.
