Send some love to Stepboys!

Stepboys attempted to do something VERY tough --  presenting themselves as zany clowns (both onstage and offstage) who are also consummate dancers. This was a risky strategy for America's Best Dance Crew, since the humor sometimes distracted viewers from the awesome dancing that the crew brought to the show. I, for one, appreciated their humor as a device to introduce surprises into performances, as well as a welcome contrast to some past crews that took themselves way too seriously. Stepboys showed us both classic forms of hiphop dance, and moves that had not been seen before on ABDC.  Imbookie!

To get some perspective on what the crew is really like behind their mask of a clown, watch their exit interview with Layla Kayleigh.
