ABCs of ABDC (panel)

90 min

Description

Dance has become an integral part of Asian American youth culture, uniting the community in a unique and expressive way. Due to increasing accessibility and the mainstream success of shows like MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew and the online-driven The LXD (The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers), artists now have a platform to catapult to rock star-esque levels and inspire a new generation of dancers.

Enjoy an intimate panel discussion with contestants from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew (ABDC) and members of the LXD as they talk about their experience on the show and in the industry. Music video directors and industry professionals will also be on hand to chime in on the evolving integration of dance in film and TV.

Scheduled to appear include members of America's Best Dance Crew Season 6 grand winners, I.AM.ME Crew, and season 6 finalists, Instant Noodles Crew, along with Shelby Rabara (The Dark Nurse) from the LXD: The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. Panel also includes Daniel Cho (Mnet).

Co-moderated by Phil Yu and Julie Zhan
