Utah Represents.... USA and World Hip Hop Championships

Check THIS out!

Calling all BBoys, BGirls, Poppers, Lockers, Krumpers, Flexers and all Urban styles... Looking for the sickest dancers in Utah to represent in the 2012 USA and WORLD Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas Nevada.  From the Creators of MTV's AMERICA'S BEST DANCE CREW holds the 11th annual championships.

USA CHAMPIONSHIPS July 29-31, Las Vegas

There will be auditions to determine who will represent Utah/USA in the Championships.  Tamra 'Londen' Callahan, Owner/Founder of CIA Dance in Southern California is organizing the teams this year and is holding a workshop and audition to determine 3 crews of 8 people each.  The age groups will be split into JUNIOR DIVISION 7-12 YRS. VARSITY DIVISION 13-17 YRS. AND ADULT OR (PRO) 18+ YRS.  Tamra has created teams that have placed 1st place in the USA and also placed in the WORLD Championships many times over.  Tamra just moved here from San Diego and would like to offer her expertise to Utah.  Let's put Utah on the map for Hip Hop!

The workshop and auditions will be held in Layton on Saturday, June 2.

As a professional dancer/choreographer and studio owner, Tamra believes this is the single most beneficial event she has ever taken dancers and teams to.  Just the International aspect alone, where dancers get to make friends from all over the world, that in many cases, end up lifetime friendships.  They get to experience being a part of something on an Olympic type of level for dance.  Hip Hop International has also done a fantastic job at keeping good values at the core of the championship.  They only allow clean music to be used, clean outfits and they stress where Hip Hop dance originated which was as an ALTERNATIVE to gangs, violence, alcohol, drugs and other destructive behaviors.  Often Hip Hop dance gets associated with RAP music.  When you actually get a chance to see inside the Hip Hop dance culture, you learn otherwise.

Dancers also get the opportunity to do the URBAN MOVES workshop held at the championships and be taught by the world's best teachers, dancers and choreographers from around the world.

Please watch the link at the top of the post and contact Hip Hop Utah by emailing with questions on how to be a part of this amazing opportunity.  Don't be intimidated by the talent level displayed.  Remember that the dancers chosen will be trained by the best for the event.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing all your moves come June 2nd.  Please post a link to this blog on your facebook page to help spread the word and get the best dancers representing Utah.
