Before dancing, Lindsey was an athlete and taught musical theatre. At the age of 16 she discovered Hip Hop when she saw some Bboys in a room practicing. It was like a "love at first sight" and after this she joined the group and started taking classes. At 17, she left San Antonio for Los Angeles to become a professional dancer and was admitted into the EDGE's Scholarship Programme. Her career as a professional dancer started in 2000/2001, just at the end of her studies.

The Beat Freaks

The Beat Freaks is an all-female dance crew from Los Angeles, California. The crew was created in 2003 by Lindsey B OutThere (Lindsey Blaufarb), Al*Star (Alison Faulk), Maryss from Paris (Marie Courchinoux), BGirl Lady Jules (Julie Urich), LockN'Key (Keeley Kaukimoce), Rino Nakazone-Razalan and Teresa Espinosa. Individually they worked with numerous artists on tours or music videos but the consecration for the crew was in 2009 when they did the TV show America's Best Dance Crew.[2] Alison was on tour with Pink during the show so BGirl Shorty (Alex Welch) joined the group and they lost the final against "Quest Crew". In 2011, BGirl Bonita (Bonita Lovett) was introduced as the newest member of the crew.
