On June 7, 2010, GEO Hubela ICONic choreographed a surprise performance for Kenny Ortega at the 2010 Astaire Awards at Gerald Lynch Theater in New York City. GEO's cast of dancers included America's Best Dance Crew Season 1's ICONic and 10 young dancers, 4 of which were under the age of 12. GEO's remix of "Newsies" creatively paired broadway-chic with urban hip hop. The music was created by Mark "Biz" Burke, a colleague of GEO, and music producer for the Jabbawockeez Vegas show MUS.I.C. Interesting note: GEO choreographed the performance within four days, totaling eight hours of rehearsal -- sounds like their ABDC schedule! Video from Gendance1 Youtube Channel.
