Freak Your Nappytabs

The Beat Freaks have recently been spotted freaking Nappytabs gear, a line of hip hop dance apparel “created by dancers for dancers.”  As you can probably guess by the name, the dancers who created this line are husband and wife choreography duo Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo.

Napoleon grew up in Apple Valley, California and Tabitha is from Galloway, New Jersey.  They both met while attending University of Nevada, Las Vegas and eventually got married and moved out to Los Angeles.  They have enjoyed successful careers as dance instructors, choreographers, and creative directors working with musical artists such as Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Beyoncé, Missy Elliot, and many others.  Napoleon and Tabitha are also supervising choreographers for America’s Best Dance Crew and choreographers and judges for So You Think You Can Dance, which you can see them tonight for the start of season 5.  [Take a look at the Nappytabs Myspace page to view videos of their highly-praised lyrical hip hop routines from SYTYCD Australia.]

The Nappytabs collection includes graphic tees and hoodies, back pocket sweats, basketball shorts, eco-friendly messenger bags, and ‘couture’ outerwear. You can purchase Nappytabs merchandise only at specialty dancewear stores, Nappytabs dance classes, and at their online store.  In fact, they just released three new colors of sweats yesterday – available exclusively online.  You can also purchase Nappytabs gear at events like Monsters of Hip Hop in Orlando July 17-19th.  Of course, The Beat Freaks will be there too!

I have to add the following video to this blog because it’s one of my all time favorites… The Geminiz performance at Carnival featuring the rest of The Beat Freaks and Tabitha D’umo.  What are your favorite non-ABDC, Beat Freaks Youtube videos?
