'America's Best Dance Crew': Darrin Henson, choreography and style
Walking around with choreographer Chonique Sneed (@ChoSneed), our guest columnist, you realize that there are a lot of other choreographers and even professional dancers that hang out around "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew." We ran into just such a professional, Mr. Darrin Henson, backstage, and Chonique wanted to do a little something for the dancers out there and for those contemplating coming on "ABDC":
Crews often branch off after "ABDC" and sell T-shirts, shoes and other clothing as just another creative outlet for the group (with some revenue attached). Marc David, co-founder of Wildchild Nation and Threaderstyle.com, is one of the individuals who makes that happen. Season 4 champions We Are Heroes, The Beat Freaks, Boogie Bots and the Ringmasters are just a few of the crews that the site has worked with. Chonique spoke to the entrepreneur about hip-hop style. As you can tell, there's a lot going on around us, so you may have to listen in a bit.
Both videos were just providing something to think about for the crews still competing, the crews that have been eliminated, and the people out there planning on auditioning.
I had to add this last video. One of my favorites EVER, Beat Freak Rino Nakasone, performed last week in a show called Siren Assassins. Sadly, it is a New York-based show and was only in Hollywood for one night, one performance. But luckily, someone uploaded the performance to YouTube. It's pretty awesome.
