SUMMER 2014 - YOUTH HIP HOP DANCE CLASS VIDEOS

Song: "Fancy" - Artist: Iggy Azalea - June 2014

Get "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea @ http://amzn.com/B00IXZA4AU
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: It's Summer 2014. Some Australian chick is blowing up the Hip Hop music scene like never before. The song is "Fancy". Grandmothers and children alike are rappin' it at the mall and in the halls. It's spreading like wildfire and can't nobody stop it.

So, we're all like, fine, if these kids wanna get fancy, that's what we're gonna do. Is this a parody video? Is it an homage? Is it up for a MTV Moonman Award? Those are questions for all you people out there to answer. Us? We're just having a good time and making sure all these kids do the same.

Congratulations Abby, Ava, Jushun, Lola, Malia, Naomi, Reese, Riley, Simrit, and Wyatt for putting together and awesome video. Ain't nobody fancier than y'all.

Song: "Can't Get Enough" - Artist: Becky G., Pitbull - 11-14yrs - July 2014

Get "Can't Get Enough" by Becky G. & Pitbull @ http://amzn.com/B00DRZ0A2I
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Our youth instructors absolutely fell in love with this track by Becky G., which just became big over the summer. Now, as you've seen from past videos, usually one song would include all of our youth classes. However, one instructor in particular loved it so much that she took over the whole song with just one class (11-14, aka "Tweens"). She started a tradition last year of letting her class split into groups to choreograph their own signature "handshake". Well, as this class is massive, it took up three quarters of the song just to get through them all. But super cool that every kid gets to have their own special moment in the spotlight.

Song: "Delirious" - Artist: Steve Aoki, Kid Ink - August 2014

Get "Delirious" by Steve Aoki & Kid Ink @ http://amzn.com/B00KZB0CDO
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Short story: A bunch of kids get together and have a mad ragin' summertime pool party in the park. Awesomeness ensues.

Director's Commentary: You've heard of those "Step Up" dance movies, right? Not exactly Academy Award kinda flix but, y'know, we're dancers ... Hip Hop dancers ... sooooo, they're kinda like required viewing for us.

What's that got to do with this camp?

Well, when we were in the conceptualization phase for this one, "Step Up: All In" was just about to hit theaters in the US. We thought it'd be a good idea to see if we could find an early release of the soundtrack for possible songs we could use for camp. That way, we could find a brand new song that we knew would be good to dance to and would probably be popular once the movie hit. We lucked out, found a list of the songs from the movie and hunted them down. Out of all of them, THIS song was absolutely perfect. It not only made us dance immediately, but it immediately sparked our brains with an idea for a Music Video Camp theme ... wild, EDM, Vegas-style pool party, but for kids. From there, the rest of the thing wrote itself. The kids had a great time coming up with ideas like water fights, swimming pools, floaties, snorkels, silly string and yes, neon cupcakes. It was nuts. If it looks like they were having a crazy fun time, they were.

Congratulations to Andrew, Anthony, Aria, Autumn, Hayley, Kiara, Lauren, Lily, Maya and Sebastian, who definitely started to go full-tilt delirious once the sugar hit the ol' noggins.

Song: "Stuck in the 80s" - Artist: KJ-52 - August 2014

Get "Stuck in the 80s" by KJ-52 @ http://amzn.com/B001KSO99Y
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: "Time to take it back to the greatest decade, ever!" That's right, the FUNKMODE kids are busting out their acid wash clothes and slotted glasses for this one. Okay, fine, the glasses were from the prop bin and the acid wash was from their Mom's closet. Anyways, this session, we had a blithe bunch of hams ready to go all out, act it up, and get in the camera's face. Silly song, silly moves, AND silly props? Sounds like a good time to us! Even if we did have to explain to the tiny tikes that the 80's were a decade, not a magical box that they were stuck in.
