Lacouir’s movement back ground started in the early 80’s in Shreveport Louisiana where he learned gung fu “southern style praying mantis”. Lacouir being influenced by this very physically demanding style of martial art led him to learn how to have great control over his body. Shortly thereafter he and his brothers became greatly influenced by the style of dance at that time which was lockin, poppin, and breakin. The year was 1982 and Michael Jackson’s “OFF The WALL” album was still on fire from 1979. Though his two oldest brothers at that time were more into the lockin, poppin and mimicking Michael Lacouir’s interest drifted towards Bboying. He began learning the foundations from his nephew then soon picked up on different moves and style on his own. He eventually got into acrobatics and learned how to do his first flip-flop from his second oldest brother. This tumbled into Lacouir receiving an All American Award in gymnast on floor exercise and more National rankings in high school on other events such as vault and even high bar. He later found Capoeira which he has been training for the past fifteen+ years, the last seven years have been focused on training Capoeira Angola. Lacouir blends a multitude of movement arts into a dance and exercise art form he calls "Polymovement." Lacouir has been a guest performer with the Peggy Choy dance company for the past five years. He has been involved, helped organize, choreograph and perform in various cities around the Midwest and East Coast!
