Video: dance clips from 90s TV including The Carlton, Mario Lopez, & 9 more

If you're feeling a bit nostalgic (or anti-nostalgic) this video from DS2DIO is the ticket. It features the Carlton, the Urkel, Mario Lopez (ABDC host -- had to get in the reference) on Saved By The Bell, Kevin Bacon's guest appearance on Will and Grace, and some cringe-worthy dances.

Video: Pharside X Kanye West - hiphop under the kaleidoscope

It's always worth it to watch dances created by Chris Pharside Jennings (ABDC's Supreme Soul, founder of Academy of Villains) but the current one is a treat for its use of kaleidoscopic effects. From pharside Youtube.

Video: Sal and Nico Banuelos (Elektrolytes) tribute to their recently deceased sister

Francine Rosas Banuelos (sister of Elektrolytes members Nico and Sal) passed away on August 24, 2013 at the age of 30. From her obituary: "She enjoyed reading, writing poetry and loved to sing with her brothers and her cousins. She was a green belt in Kajukenbo and was employed at NAK Martial Arts Center. She loved being around all the kids at the dojo, and was just saying how the kids always made her day brighter. Although she was a little firecracker she had the biggest heart."

 Her brothers created this video in her memory. Rest in peace.

The Philippine All Stars at HHI '13 | Mega Crew & Adult Divisions

Head over to OfficialHHI YouTube to see more performances from this year's Hip Hop International that were recently uploaded.  But for now, check out the Philippine All Stars as they competed in the Mega Crew Division for the very first time!  They placed 3rd in the Prelims and 7th in the Semi-Finals (missing their chance to compete at World Finals by .02 points!!).  And their Adult Crew was amazing as well, missing the Bronze Medal by .04 points.  Below is much better view of their routine from when they were special guests at WoD: Bay Area.  From World of Dance Network YouTube.

Video: D-trix's twerking seminar with Victor Kim (Quest Crew), Jaja (IaMmE), & Jerel (Step boys) ++

It took me awhile to watch this one because I am tired of hearing people who never watch dance talk about twerking. But it's worth it to watch to the end where D-trix has assembled an "America's Got So You think you can Twerk Dance Crew Idol Crew" with Victor Kim (ABDC's Quest Crew), Jaja Vankova (ABDC's IaMmE), Megan Batoon, Ellen Kim, Aye Hasagawa, Jerel (ABDC's Stepboys) and other dancers who are actually talented. From the wildly popular theDOMINCshow channel Thanks Greg!
