So there’s this show… I think it’s about people who think they can dance?
SYTYCD is an AMAZING show, a massively-powerful force for good in the dance industry. Not only does it promote young dancers it showcases and celebrates SO many different styles of dance, giving cutting-edge choreography and creativity a forum for nation-wide appreciation. Especially it is a chance for the public to see and respect Hip hop dance as the complex art form that it is!
We were thrilled to have recent stars of SYTYCD on the B-GIRL Red Carpet – Ellenore, Kathryn and B-GIRL star b-boy Legacy!
Keep watching the show, our two favorite choreographers/fashion designers and friends Napoleon & Tabitha D’uomo are on almost every week, raising the bar with creative and lyrical Hip hop choreography!
Much TiVo love,
Style Files episode one… The Originators. Check out this reel of gear from The Originators in B-GIRL… it’s like a fashion show!
Have to give massive thanks to Adam at the Originators, he believed in the film and really supported us.
Another little insider 411 on independent filmmaking — Wardrobe is reeeeeeally expensive, and when great companies like The Originators support we get to represent our friends and true brands while everyone on-screen looks fly. Win-win!
(soooo not for anyone who knows me!)

It’s a great time to be in hip hop and in Hollywood – the creativity, skill and attention to the dance is like never before. New people are seeing breaking for the first time on TV and in the movies and it is gaining respect as the legitimate art form that it is. It’s also a time of unparalleled creativity – cutting-edge choreographers are pushing the limits of the mainstream definition of ‘hip hop’ – being emotional, telling a story – but also being rooted to the history and the cypher.
But with great power comes great responsibility…
We’ve got to make sure representations are accurate and artists are united. Hear thoughts on this Lady Jules and the Beat Freaks; Legacy, Kathryn and Ellenore from So You Think You Can Dance; Jon Chu, Director of Step Up 2 and 3D; the stars of B-GIRL and more, all from the B-GIRL Red Carpet!
Speaking of Hollywood… BIG NEWS!! Our amazing choreographer Flipz (Ivan “Flipz” Velez) will be performing at the OSCARS on Sunday, March 7th. Tune in, TiVo, turn off the phone because Oscars ain’t never seen nothin’ like Flipz. (Scorsese, from the front row: “that guy! I’m gonna make that guy a star!”)
