DirtfaceX's field report (with video) on Hype 5-0's performance at Ailvin Ailey in New York City

DirtfaceX attended ABDC5's Hype 5-0 workshops and performance at the Alvin Ailey extension on September 18 2010, and shares this report: 
"The event scheduled two master class workshops and a night of performances.  The unique part of the event was that the four best dancers from the workshops (chosen by Hype 5-0) received free classes from Alvin Ailey and the opportunity to perform with the crew later that night!

The first workshop was taught by Josh & Britney.  The second was taught by Will, Allen, and John.  I participated in the first workshop - but I couldn't keep up - and eventually sat out and watched.  From what I experienced and saw, both workshops were pretty intense.  Everyone did a great job teaching.  At the end of each class, the 4 dancers were chosen and everyone went and got ready for the performances."

Click here to read the rest of the report, including comments on the performances, the meet-and-greet- and the performance. The video is not created by him --it's from the Starlight448 Youtube Channel. Thanks for the report DirtfaceX!
