Lucile “Frak” Graciano

Frak by Daniel Pincus/Oliver Page

Lucile Graciano AKA B Girl Frak from Limoges, France, came to New York in 2007 to study dance at Steps on Broadway through the International Student Visa Program. Since the age of seven she was a competitive rhythmic gymnast for Limoges Team which explain her remarkable flexibility.
Frak studied and performed with La Manufacture, a professional dance school in Aurillac, France, directed by American dancer Vendetta Mathea and teaches Pilates.
She has, at a remarkably young age, established herself as one of the genuine hip-hop dancer/bgirl in France.  She was France’s representative at Nike’s “Dance to L.A.” contest in Amsterdam. Lucile has performed at UNESCO’s 50th Anniversary celebration and starred as a dancer in commercials for the likes of Samsung and V8, collaborated with iconic figures like Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Kevin Porter (Shock-a-lock) and Pop Master Fabel and drawn rave reviews from publications as notable as The Village Voice.


Frak is now working with Decadancetheatre, Nomadic Wax, Phyllis Rose Dance Company and Bar-Top-Bandits which with she tours all over the world.

Press Quotes

"The pioneering all female hip-hop group, a fearless coalition of b-girls"
The New Yorker

“Jennifer Weber’s Brooklyn-based Decadancetheatre got things off to a promising start. In The Cage, a world premiere, the four company members balanced their cohesion as a tightly knit unit against individual strengths.”
--Donald Huerta
The London Times


"Ms. Weber is onto something…a performance that is intensely emotional and casually streetwise”
—Jennifer Dunning
The New York Times


“Her leading dancers bring—dare I say?—the feminine mystique to hip-hop. They suspend the expected fierce staccato moves in a matrix of lush fluency and add a dimension of alluring mystery to the form's conventional tough, streetwise attitude.”
--Tobi Tobias,
The Village Voice


“Their unusual blend of hip hop and ballet was so carefully choreographed, it would makes the likes of J-Lo weep”
—Ellie Hargreaves,
The Westmorland Gazette (UK)
