LET'S
TALK BOUT' IT

Jennifer "Bout' It" Gonzales was born in Fort Worth (Funkytown). She now lives in Dallas, Texas. She performs, hosts dance events, and teaches classes. 

 

At the age of six, she went to the Boys & Girls Club, where she learned her first dance, the "Tootsie Roll," from an older girl. Jen has always had a natural rhythm since she could walk. Growing up, she learned how to dance Tejano & Cumbia, and by age eight, she started practicing breaking with her siblings. 

 

Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, Jen choreographed and performed in multiple talent shows. She also did cheerleading, performed for a local tv show, quinceaneras, and sweet sixteens. During high school, Jennifer joined the drill and step teams. In her senior year, she created her own crew outside of school called "The Lunachicks," who performed at events and special occasions. 

 

In 2006 Jen was introduced to the underground Hip Hop culture where she attended her first Jam called "Breakin' Barriers" in Fort Worth, Tx. That day she fell in love with Bgirlin. Shortly after that, her focus was solely on breaking, and she spent hours practicing every day. In 2007 Jen entered her first Bgirl Battle at Bgirl City in Austin, Tx. It's at this battle that she earned her Bgirl name "Bout' It" by a legendary Bgirl, "Honey Rockwell," from the Bronx, New York's famous Rock Steady Crew. 

 

She has traveled to multiple jams to compete and attended countless workshops during her travels to improve her skills. She's learned from some of the best, including Honey Rockwell, Ken Swift, Kwon, Ladieone, Jk47, Omar (MZK), Fabulous Freddy, Brian Green, Green Tech, Mike Song, Roxrite, Macca, and the list goes on and on. 

 

 Bout' It is an All Styles dancer, aside Hip Hop, Cumbia, Bgirlin,' she has training in different dance styles such as Salsa, Bachata, House, Popping, Locking, Belly Dancing & More. Always a student and continues her training. 

 

Founder of "Ladies With Flava." A collective movement empowers the Ladies through Hip Hop & Latin Cultures, promoting self-love and holistic practices.
