Jabbawockeez: From REGENERATE To Battle Of The Year 2014

“Jabbawockeez – Battle of the Year 2014”

Since their 2008 win at America’s Best Dance Crew, Jabbawockeez have been leaders in the movement expanding hip hop dance beyond breaking.

In looking for appropriate high points from 2014, I discovered that they don’t always dance with the same size group. For instance, in the appearance above, they have 5 members while at World of Dance Bay Area 2014 they did essentially the same set with the full group of 7.

Changing the number onstage can be tough in any dance work but given the highly synchronized nature of their act, the fact that they can fluidly shift numbers and still be as precise as ever is quite impressive.

Below we get a look at Jabbawockeez’ talents in a narrative setting.
