The Legendary “Jimmy “Scoo B Doo” Foster is the name he received upon his return to the dance world. Rumours were that he had passed away, nowhere to be seen nor heard for almost twenty-five years; his closest friends had lost touch. I can recount the story, but what better than to listen to it from the source, as we always say in the street dance world? The story rivals the Hero’s Journey for those who know or strive to write the best novel or screenplay.
With his 6’4” stature, Scoo B Doo feels like a giant, and those who’ve stood close to him inside his workshops remember how the dance floor shook and how painful it was to do the famed Lockers’ Handshake with him. Oh, that burn!
I wrote an article for Wättssoul in 2014 called Wisdom From Uncle Scoo B Doo, now on my website https://seektash.com/ if you are interested in reading about how impactful his return was to me and many others.
Today, Jimmy “Scoo B Doo” Foster still travels internationally to share his passion and genuine love of Campbellocking/Locking with the new generation. Just Google him, and you’ll find all his judge demos. He now lives in Orlando, Florida, with his beautiful wife, Gina, surrounded by his beautiful children and grandchildren.
