The Las Vegas Sun followed Kaba Modern at Hip Hop International with a wonderfully intimate look at the dance group's preparation for the competition. The article goes way beyond reporting, getting at what it feels like backstage. My favorite article quote (and I recommend you read the whole article!): "Waiting is the hard part. You can train your body to move, to fall backward on stage and plop without hurting yourself. After a while, it's muscle memory. Training your mind not to get your hopes up, to be okay with not going as far as you wanted to in a competition? That's more difficult."
