Beat Freaks Performance at Dizzy Feet Foundation

The Beat Freaks performed today at the Dizzy Feet Foundation’s “Celebration of Dance” Fundraising Gala at the Kodak Theater.  Cat Deeley introduced the Beat Freaks, “These next dancers prove that anything boys can do, girls can do better.”  Immediately, everyone knew she was talking about the Beat Freaks.

The brand new routine started with the first special guest, The Magic Ball, and went into Dirty Money’s ‘Love Come Down’ choreography.  I hope everyone gets to see the full LCD choreography soon, because it is sick!  Next, they started dancing to Sheila E.’s “The Glamorous Life” and were soon joined on stage by the legend, herself.  Each Beat Freak had their moment to shine with their individual, signature freestyle.  The set ended with one of BGirl Shorty’s incredible headspins.  The crowd loved it and brought the fans to their feet screaming.  The Beat Freaks definitely went above and beyond in every aspect; the dancing, music, fashion, production, and of course Sheila E!

There were so many amazing dancers and routines at the Dizzy Feet Gala.  The recipients of the Dizzy Feet scholarships from Julliard, American Ballet Theater, Mary Murphy Dance Studio, Debbie Allen Dance Academy, and Alvin Ailey all performed and are so very talented.  Other standout routines included:

  • The LXD dancers – My second favorite performance of the night.  I can’t wait for this web series to come out in 2010.  If you haven’t seen the trailer, watch it here.
  • The Groovaloos – Keeley and Lindsey joined them on stage.
  • Quest Crew – They performed their usual ABDC mash-up routine.  Always a crowd pleaser!  Standing ovation for them.
  • SYTYCD – The Mia Michaels’ addiction routine with Kayla and Kupono and “This Woman’s Work” cancer routine with Ade and Melissa both received standing ovations as well.  Jason and Jeanine also performed Travis Wall’s choreography.  Katee and Joshua performed Nappytabs’ “No Air” routine and Jason and Caitlin did their Bollywood routine.
  • Lil C and others did some major krumping to a live drummer.
  • DWTS – Performances included Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Lacey Schwimmer, Lance Bass, Mark Ballas, Kristi Yamaguchi, Gilles Marini, Jonathan Roberts and Anna Trebunskaya.
  • Step Up Dancers – Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Briana Evigan, and Sharni Vinson all performed.  They had an amusing introduction by Step Up male leads Rick Malambri, Robert Hoffman, and Channing Tatum who couldn’t keep from laughing.
  • Other performances from Rage Boyz Crew, Fabienne Levenson, and an MJ Tribute by young Isaac Blanks.
  • Presenters also included Cat Deeley, Nigel Lythgoe, Carrie Ann Inaba, Adam Shankman, Kenny Ortega, Glee’s Matt Morrison, and Katie Holmes.
