This week, I have chosen to inform you about another one of my all time favourite dance crews, which apparently is one of America’s all time favourites as well. If you didn’t enjoy my choice for last week (the Electric Boogaloos) whom some of you might have found to be retro or outdated, I’m sure you’ll be fond of this week’s choice. Popular for their riveting style, their unique swagger and their success in the very first season of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, my choice for this week is none other than the legendary JabbaWockeeZ.
The JabbaWockeeZ is a popular hip hop team that originated in California in the year of 2003. The 10-man group started out with appearances at local showcases and club events in San Diego and Los Angeles. The group had their first taste of publicity by appearing on the second season of America’s Got Talent. Later on, they entered MTV’s very first televised hip-hop competition, America’s Best Dance Crew, and took home the championship. It was after this event that the group took off and became known to most hip hop fans. Out of all the champions of the four seasons of America’s Best Dance Crew, the JabbaWockeeZ have been the most successful, appearing as guest stars in many shows, including: Live with Regis and Kelly, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, America’s Next Top Model, the 2009 NBA All-Star Game, and many more. They have also made a cameo in Step Up 2: The Streets, toured with New Kids on the Block, and established their own clothing line.
The JabbaWockeeZ have been renowned for their elaborate synchronization and the intricacy of their dance moves. Personally, it is for those exact reasons that I absolutely adore the JabbaWockeeZ. Their style of hip hop is very unique, as they incorporate miming into their dancing which is highly uncommon. In addition, their costumes just top each performance off and have set them apart from all others. In each performance, all members wear the exact same attire as well as white gloves and masks to produce the illusion that they are all identical. This, added to their flawless synchronization makes each performance legendary.
