I found these pics some time back but neglected to post them and am relieved to report that she hasn't turned into a munter as some ladies from the scene have sadly become.
I'd hate to see what Sparky D looks like now *shudder*

Baby Love (real name Daisy Castro) is now approximately 43 years old and has settled in Atlanta with two kids.
There was once a rumour that she broke her neck and died whilst performing a headspin. Hmmmm.
For those inclined among you, her Facebook page is here.
I don't care what you think, I still reckon 'Hey You (The Rock Steady Crew)' is DOPE. Yeah, it has singing in the verses by the other members of the group which most certainly contains a high level of cheese but that's what gives it it's charm!
Also check this page for a great read of a reprinted magazine article about the RSC in 1984. I liked the quote from the disgruntled, classically-trained traditional dancer, Alexis, who says
"Breakers are taking jobs away form professional dancers. The trade journals Variety and Show Business, advertise for breakers to act in commercials, films, plays. We can't wait until the whole thing passes over.
I went to audition for a movie the other day, where there was a call for dancers. They (the breakers) took some of the spots away from us. I don' really resent it, though, because I know it's just a passing fad."
She was almost right. Commercially at least.
