America's Best Dance Crew Live Tour in Boston!

On Thursday September 25, I saw one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. America’s Best Dance America Crew the Live Tour came to Boston, and I still cannot get over how much energy the performers brought into the theatre. The decor of the elegant Wang Theatre (typically used for opera and classical performances) provided a stark contrast against the urban dance crews on stage. A three-story metal structure was set up on stage that allowed the dancers and DJ to do their thing. As soon as the show started, the MC for the night immediately told the entire audience to get on their feet. Everyone was excited to be there (myself included) and were cheering and dancing the whole time. I can’t even explain how much better seeing the crews live is than seeing them on TV. All of the stunts and moves were much more dazzling in real life. Both Super Cr3w and Jabbawockeez were huge crowd pleasers and definitely deserved to win their respective seasons.

Super Cr3w Wins America's Best Dance Crew Season 2

Congratulations SUPER CR3W!!!! On ThursdaySuper Cr3w Wins America August 21, Super Cr3w took the gold at the season finale of the second season of America’s Best Dance Crew. Yet again, the west coast won the whole thing. I guess California (many of Super Cr3w’s members are from southern CA) is a breeding ground for amazing crews. What really made Super Cr3w stand apart from everyone else was their unique bboy style and mind blowing stunts. They gave America a huge peek into the break dancing world and developed their choreography skills into a force to be reckoned with. Out of all the crews, Super Cr3w showed the most diversity and definitely deserved the champion title.

Watch Out America's Best Dance Crew, ASIID is So "Dangerous"

Despite having an out of sync performance last week when Joey lost his hearing aid, ASIID still remained on topAmericain the audience’s hearts. The crew really stepped up to the speed up challenge. They killed both the slow and fast sections, and told a story through their dancing. ASIID set themselves apart from the other crews when they incorporated ballet in their hip hop routine. It was definitely refreshing to see a fusion of classical with modern dancing. I also have to commend them for how hard they always dance and how well they work together especially in light of Joey’s disability. During the background segment of the show, Joey mentioned he was having difficulty with the fast section because he couldn’t hear the music as well, but I didn’t notice any problems in his dancing. Even though I can’t stand Lil Mama, I have to admit that she was right in saying that Joey goes harder than anyone else in the crew.
