B-GIRL Stars in STEP UP 3D & The LXD

August 6th, 2010

Takin’ it to the streets wasn’t enough, oh no… in the next chapter of the Step Up go see B-GIRL stars Flipz, Legacy, Remedy, Beastmode, Milky, Venum, and more step OUT of the screen in full beautiful 3D!

The movie opens nationwide FRIDAY AUG. 6th, check it out!

AND… If the Disney Big-time is too ‘mainstream’, you find yourself drawn to things more complicated, more innovative, and darker…. then you are missing it if you’re not already following the LXD.

It’s an online-series that is breaking new ground with creative storylines, wild super-human dance moves and choreography that will blow your mind!  Seriously, its an amazing time to be in dance.

I’m very lucky to be part of this world and to have these talented people as  friends!
I already bought my movie tickets… did you??

3D-Goggle love,

Stars of “So You Think You Can Dance”

March 24th, 2010

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!

Dance & Hollywood

March 3rd, 2010

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!”)

B-GIRL stars continue to dominate the airwaves!  B-Boy Legacy is the latest from our cast to show the reality-dance craze how it’s done (just a matter of time, right?).  He’s made it into the top 18 on So You Think You Can Dance, he’s got solid fans in Nigel and Adam, and Mary continues the tough love.
