August 16, 2011Last Tuesday a slew of dancing fans and fiends all flocked to Tapas Restaurant in Newport Beach for the 7th Annual Focus Dance Competition-that we just so happened to be sponsoring (insert shameless plug there). The talent pool was so deep that we saw dancers travel all the way from San Diego and Los Angeles to strut their stuff. With three categories: Breaking, Popping and Freestyle, this was surely a night to remember. Repeating champ Slim Boogie wowed the crowd again with his insane antics and took home first in the Popping category, while Toy Box did it up and sweeped numero uno in the Freestyle event. Then, lastly but surely not least, Ryan head spun and wind milled all over the dance floor to take home first place honors in the Breaking category. Never a dull moment, the competition was stiff and the dancing went all the way until 1:45am when security basically had to start booting us out. However, by that time, we had all seen what we came for and were plenty stocked up on motivation to make our journey home with ease and start plotting our plan of attack for next year. We also wanna throw a huge shout out real quick to Josh Billings who mixed it up on the cuts all night and kept the competition flowing. We honestly can’t wait for next year, but until then…check some of the exclusive photos and video we have for you. Josh Billings on the 1's and 2's. HEX on display. Sorry to everybody I had to deny our goods too, but thanks for the compliments! Ryan-the breaking winner. The men of the evening. Champs from Left to Right: Ryan (Breaking), Slim Boogie (Popping) and Toy Box (Freestyle).
