Poreotics, winner of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5 last year will be in Manila next month.
Seriously, I haven’t heard of them until this weekend. I will be honest to all that I am _NOT_ into this dance and dance crew stuff but I really got curious as Raven and my nephew seems to be addicted into to one of their videos (see the monkeys below). So I did some quick research and I am impressed with the group hence this post.
Their group name came from the three styles of hip-hop: popping, choreography and robotics hence Poreotics. They will be the front act for Justin Bieber in his May 10 concert in SM MOA grounds and will do some mall tour too (see Poreotics Mall Hop image below)
It is interesting to note that 3 of the members of dance crew are Filipinos (Lawrence Devera, Justin Valles and Chad Mayate) while the other three (Matt Nguyen, Can Nguyen and Charles Nguyen) are Vietnamese.
If fellow ABDC champs Jabbawockeez have masks, they have their own trademark: dark glasses. They explained that it gives them character and its their way to hide their emotions.
Below is their video with Justin Bieber and Usher: Somebody to Love (official video remix)
