Video & description of Super Cr3w at the White House: "turning the East Room into a Human Skate Park"

Super Cr3w performed at the White House on September 7, 2010 as part of a program for young dancers. The Washington Post wrote: "Super Cr3w was a compelling addition. The six young men with upper bodies of steel turned the East Room into a human skate park, as they bounced and leapt off each other's shoulders and backs, power-drilled their heads into the stage while their legs windmilled through the air and prompted some girls in the back rows to whip out their video cameras. "The zeitgeist of today with dance on television is like nothing I've ever seen," observed an admiring Damian Woetzel, introducing Super Cr3w. Woetzel, the former New York City Ballet principal dancer, was the evening's engaging and polished emcee."
The only footage I've found so far is this official White House  of the workshop; the segment with Super Cr3w starts around 1:14.00.
