I spoke with Howard and Karen Schwartz, creators of America's Best Dance Crew at the New York auditions for ABDC Season 7. In this first of two videos with them, they describe their hopes for the new season, and what they've seen and are looking for in several types of auditioners: new crews who have never auditioned, crews that have already appeared on ABDC, international crews, and younger teams. And, they reveal that the new season will air on Wednesday nights at 10pm ET/PT, starting (probably) on April 11, 2012. In the second video interview with the Schwartzes (available soon!), they describe exciting developments for Hip Hop International 11 in July 2012.
