tbabbrook2The seven guys from Cape Town stand motionless in the glaring lights. They can feel the anticipation of the Las Vegas audience pulsating through their veins and then…
The controlled adrenaline precipitates two minutes of coherence and control, which leaves the crowd in “da-bomb” shock.
Yo Cape Town! Take a minute to salute this group of dancers so sick they have the world at their feet.
The deadly Durbanville hip-hop crew, Brooklyn, is the fifth best in the world after they recently competed in the Hip-Hop International Championship in Vegas.
Watching them pulling their perfect moves on stage leaves one absolutely dumbfounded.
Talent – of which they have plenty – is of course not enough. So it’s a good thing they didn’t rely solely on this.
Months of practise and a steely determination that will leave Justin Timberlake skulking in the corner have ensured an irresistible performance.
The members, Hoze “Big Po” Jonas (Durbanville), Lyle “Lyl Po” Jonas, Robert “Mr Lyrical” Bezuidenhout, Ashwin “Pipes” Cillier, Reveno “Muis” van der Merwe, Graham “Grey Seaun” Swartz and Nathan “Nate” Adriaanse did their country proud.
Hoze is the choreographer and is smoking hot, as the crew’s manager, Crisanne van Rensburg, explains: “He is the actual reason that drew me to Brooklyn. When you watch them it feels like you are dancing. You can feel each person’s motivation and passion for what they do. With his choreography he can give you exactly what you want. If you want to cry at the end of the performance then he can do it. You sit there and wonder to yourself how he comes up with these moves, but it just comes naturally to him!”
Hoze and Crisanne came to TygerBurger’s offices recently and spoke about their latest and greatest achievement.
This isn’t the first time the crew went to compete in the World Championship in Las Vegas, but it is the highest they’ve ever been placed.
They thoroughly deserved to make the finals, which Hoze describes as the Olympics of Hip-Hop.
When he talks about the experience his eyes light up. It is clear that he lives for dancing – much like all those who competed.
Virtually every day of the week there is some kind of coaching going on at the Fusion School of Hip-Hop, so to find out more about the benefits, times and cost, contact Hoze.
