Manifest Nation – 2nd at World Crew Battle!

Last month, some of our adult dancers from our professional company, Manifest Nation, competed at the World Crew Battle event in Deptford, London.

The winners of the event had the opportunity to represent the UK at the international finals in Berlin! Alex, Angelika, Francesc, Kadeem & Tru managed to make it to the final but were defeated by Rain Future Crew who went on to get to the finals in Berlin too. Props to them.

Please join us in applauding our squad for a job well done and stay connected to the Facebook page for updates on what’s happening next with them. French publication, Striter, reported that Manifest Nation were the only crew that came prepared effectively for the event.

It showed 🙂

 

Hallowe’en with NBC Universal

Last month we were invited to run a hallowe’en dance activity for Comcast / NBC Universal at their London offices and great fun was had by all.

This event, for 200 select children, was an opportunity for Tru, Ryan, Damien and new-face, Kerri, to teach a revised version of Michael Jackson’s’Thriller’ routine, and a fun time was had by all.

Our booking agent, Kat at Shift London, had this to say after the event:

“You guys were absolutely superb, you absolutely stole the show. It was better than what I had imagined.”

We were moved by this account, and hope you enjoy some pictures from the occasion! Visit here to see whether we can enrich YOUR event 🙂
