Hey! We're off to New Jersey! This newest episode of KoopaTV joins Leslie Hubilla (RDT) in her latest concept video presented by DTF (Down To Film) Productions and Raps Dance Troupe.

This concept is truly inspiring and uplifting. I'm also moved by the geniune emotion of each of the dancers, as they 'hesitate' to show what they believe in. Subscribe to [RapsDanceTroupe], because this will not be the last concept video they will release this season!

David Sean Jason's report on World of Dance Seattle

David Sean Jason attended World of Dance Seattle on September 10, 2011. Here are his impressions:

It was by far AMAZING!.. What was the first thing I did? I bought a Mos Wanted Crew shirt and tank! Chachi was also right inside where her clothes were being sold. I was able to get her to do a Shoutout to BABDC and will try to upload it as soon as possible to my JasonSeanDavid Youtube site. Unfortunately, I was super far in the back of the line for the Meet and Greet and was not able to get JRA's and Puspos' signature. However, I was able to find them early on as I reserved my seat inside the auditorium and was lucky enough to get them to sign my old SoRealCru shirt that I won from this site.
Now lets talk about the show. Is it just more or are more and more kids taking up dancing? And when I mean kids, I mean little elementary school kids. There were three Bboy kids that performed solo including Bboy Jalen who's performance did not please me at all. There were many VERY young dance crews, and it must be hard to believe this, but they KILLED their performances. All the early performances definitely set the atmosphere for the competition round. The competition crews were VERY VERY good! It was by far in my head the closest competition between crews. I honestly don't know HOW THE HECK judges do the scoring, but many crews performed VERY well.

Ulimate Showdown of ABDC Superiority Round One Day Five

It looks to be another action packed round today! First will the imaginative stylings of Static Noyze be able to triumph over Phresh Select's raw power? Will Enigma's first impression beat out Femme 5's last hurrah? In a battle of the b-boys who will prevail, Instant Noodles or Boogie Bots? Vote and help us decide!

For the first round there will be three match ups each. Please follow the links provided and watch each performance. Afterwords vote for which one you feel was the better routine.

--Only one vote per match up.
--You must vote for all three match ups.
--One entry per day, per user.
--In the event of a tie I will cast the tie breaking vote.
--Voting ends at 12:01 am est 9/17/2011.
--Updated Bracket can be found here.

PREVIOUS ROUND RESULTS: First I just wanna say thanks for all the participation in this everyone! Last round had the highest number of votes so far.

A.S.I.I.D.'s heat proved to much for Team Millena, but how will they do against fan favorite Fanny Pak? Fr$SH pulls an upset over Heavy Impact. Finally, in a battle of the some of the smoothest crews to ever be on the show, Southern Movement comes out the winner agaisnt Distorted X. How will these two Season Four Crews do when they face each other in the second round?

- Mess in Aisle 7 (Episode 8) takes place in the current day. LXD Rinas -- a bevy of ballet/contemporary dancers on the GOOD side -- try to get to the Dark Doctor by ambushing the Dark Nurse and her son (danced by Lil Demon). This episode advances the plot, but feels less intense and a little sillier than most.
--Alliance of the Dark (Episode 9)-- returns us back to the nightmare world. Sp3cimen is in the clutches of the Dark Doctor, who is busy examining possible recruits to his gas masked battalion of evil. And, a visitor arrives looking to partner in a quest to demolish the LXD. THIS is the IaMmE episode -, and it's a beaut! Also featured: Madd Chad (back as Sp3cimen), Jonathan 'Bionic Man' Bayani (member of America's Best Dance Crew Season 2), Wesley 'Poppin John' Austin, and Robert 'Robot Prince' Knott. DEFINITELY watch this one, but not in the dark by yourself.

Legendary Hip Hop | Beat Street - RSC v NYCB

My first Legendary Hip Hop post was of Rock Steady Crew in the movie "Flashdance." This week, we have another early 80s movies featuring RSC, as well as contemporaries and equally legendary crew, the New York City Breakers (who will probably have a post of their own in the near future).
In the movie "Beat Street," RSC and NYCB become the Bronx Rockers and Beat Street Breakers respectively. In a look at hip hop culture of that time period, the movie features bboying, in addition to MCing, DJing, and grafitti. On a side note, the music of this movie's soundtrack was provided by legendary hip hop artists such as DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five, and Afrika Bambaataa and the Sonic Soul Force, among others, all of whom appeared in the film. In this clip, we see RSC (in blue) and NYCB (in red) battling it out in the club, much as a crew at the time period would do so. Of course the moves are simpler, as bboying had not evolved to the point it has today, but it also shows how delivery and execution were that much more important in battles at the time.
The effects of this film would be long reaching, especially overseas. The combination of all four pillars of hip hop would help this culture spread as more than just a genre of music, with graffiti and bboying being very important in countries such as Germany.
Skip to about 3:40 for the start of the battle

Congratulations to Napoleon & Tabitha D'umo on their Emmy win!

Napoleon and Tabitha D'umo (aka Nappytabs) tied for an  2011 Emmy Award in choreography. They won for their work on So You think You Can Dance for :Scars”,  “Fallin”, and  “Outta Your Mind”. Click here for "Outta Your Mind" danced by Alex and Twitch -one of my favorite SYTYCD hip hop routines ever; click here to watch "Scars" danced by D-trix and Robert.  And here's "Fallin", danced by Adechike and Comfort. 
Mia Michaels also won a choreography Emmy for her work on SYTYCD, with her "Alice in Mia-land", "When We Dance", and "This Bitter Earth/on the nature of Daylight".
