Hey there! I know a bunch of you are going to love this week's video, as it features Aye Hasegawa, Chachi Gonzalez, and Ellen Kim performing Ellen's choreo to "Booty Work". These three lovely ladies are widely recognized for their swagger. They definitely bring it here.

Dumbo (from ABDC5's Poreotics) teaches at BoogieZone Utopia in Torrance, CA every Wednesday. This video is a promotion for his class -- let us know if you attend the next one!
Adrien Causing was the leader and choreographer for Fr3sh, a crew that appeared on ABDC Season 4 and went home far too soon. Fr3sh has disbanded, but Adrien is still active in the East Coast dance community. This video shows a preview of a routine he plans to show at Prelude DMV, danced to Rihanna's "We Found Love" by him and Community Artistry NJ. From CommunityArtistry Youtube.

I'm having surgery later this morning for a torn tendon in my elbow. Because of that, I will be doing very little posting (except for a few videos which I've loaded this morning to be released tomorrow) and am not sure how much will posted by our other contributors who are currently swamped with school and work. So, please be patient if we are late in posting hot new info/videos or responding to your questions or tips. In the meantime, if you're bored, check out some of the America's Best Dance Crew auditioners and vote in our ABDC7 Top 8 contest!

"You Got Served Battlefield America" is a look at the seamy side of youth battle culture in Long Beach California. The movie, which is scheduled to be released in June 2012, includes some great kid crews (including members of Baby Maation, RNG, PG Family and others) as well as krumper Russell Ferguson (winner of So You Think You Can Dance). So, for those adults who are skeptics about the kid dancers-- check this out!

Latest video from Klaamation - why we won't be on ABDC, news on KMT & Baby Maation, dance highlights
Klaamation just created a new video talking about changes in the group (one new member, one departure for awhile), why they are not going to audition for America's Best Dance Crew again, the projects that the members are appearing in (including working with Rihanna and in films), and information about Baby Maation (though there's no news on whether the kid crew was chosen for ABDC). And the video ends with highlights from other videos, where Klaamation choreographed or was part of the dancing. Klaamation has always been exceptional among crews, and I think it's a loss to the public that we won't see them on ABDC.
Videos: Chachi (IaMmE) on the ABDC7 auditions & an announcement! + speed round on boys, pizza, dance styles & more
We were so fortunate to have Chachi join Chris Trondsen in conducting interviews at the Los Angeles auditions for America's Best Dance Crew Season 7. She has charming, funny, and really engaged the nervous auditioners. At the end of the day, Chris interviewed her about the experience, and she announces that she and Dtrix have scheduled a dance battle. And he conducted a 'lightning round' of quick questions on topics like: dance style she wants to learn, what she wants on her pizza, what kind of boys she likes, how long it takes her to do her hair, what birthday gift she wants for her birthday, her cellphone, favorite place to sing, dance clothes vs. dressing up. And she ends with a message to her fans. Thanks Chachi and Chris!
