Nonstop is a very talented dancer and the amount of attention this video received was well deserved.
Now let's move onto what I thought were the best things in the hip hop dance community from the past year.
Best Choreographer: Shaun Evaristo-Shaun has had an amazing 2011, which included choreographing a performance for So You Think You Can Dance and the grand opening of the ML Studio.
Best Crew/Company: Choreo Cookies-Once again, the Cookies dominated the competition scene, winning the majority of the competitions they entered.
Best Competition: Body Rock 2011-The level of talent at this competition gets higher and higher every year. 2011 was no exception.The top 3 performances were among my favorite performances from this year.
Best Battler: El Nino-This kid tore up the place, notching big wins at WBC and the US qualifier for Red Bull BC One.
Queens of Swag: Parris Goebel & Rie Hata-Just watch the video. Ridiculous.
Best Choreography Video: Vinh Nguyen "Break Ya Neck"-The crazy closer to SGBM's Body Rock performance combined with a look into the mind of a choreographer makes an amazing video.
Best Choreography: Lyle Beniga "Bait"-I seriously can't stop watching this...help?
Best Commercial: Unleash Your Fingers-Amazing finger tuts and amazing graphics. I want that phone. Big ups to JayFunky.
Best YouTube Channel: YAKfilms-From their dance tutorials, to their coverage of major dance events, to their web series Yak Like Ya Know, to their well produced dance videos, Yak Films offers nearly everything a dance fan would ever want all in one channel.
Best ABDC Performance: Jabbawockeez "Devastating Stereo"-Since this IS a blog about ABDC, I felt compelled to include this category. This performance showcased Jabba at their finest.
