World of Dance 2012
Saturday afternoon I rode my FreqntFlyr bike to the L.A. Convention Center for World of Dance. A competition of all types of urban dance styles & crews from all over the world.
Our boys at Freqnt Flyr Bike Co. had a little booth at the show. It was perfect & I didn’t have to lock my bike outside. WOD is a more of a mainstream type competition. I’m use to going to more of the core bboy/street battles like BBoy Summit, Freestyle Sessions, Radiotron, etc. But it was interesting to see all types of choreo dance teams from all over competing. A great opportunity for organized dance teams to show off their talent. Also great to see young kids getting into dance. Dance is what got me out of the gangs in L.A. Straight out battling was on my mind all day when I was a young freestyle dancer back in the late 80′s & 90′s. Props to World of Dance for bringing the urban dance community together.
This year they had a an official bboy battle invitational that was being filmed for Youtube called the Arena. Don’t really know too much about the Youtube show but I snuck in some few photos from the video shoot. Glad to see an old friend, t.v. commentator, documentarian & California surfer girl Angela Sun hosting the show with the other guest host BBoy Filpz. Guest judges were Crazy Legs (Rock Steady Crew), Asia One (NoEazyProps), & Abstrak (Skill Methodz Crew). Got to see one of my favorite bboys Kid David (Renegade Rockers) at the competition. Also shout out to Madd Chadd from LXD/StepUp3D & Gee Wiz. Good to see you guys at the show.
