After dancing for so long time. It comes a time when one would like to share the stage with a partner or a group of people. As for me, that would be with Fresh Dynamix. Fresh Dynamix is all styles urban hip hop dance crew from the Bay Area that was founded in 2008 in Fremont, CA. I joined the crew Fall of 2010 and has been dancing with them ever since. Each member has their own style but can dance every style. We performed all over the Bay Area, including the Super Bowl 50 event this past February. We’ve entered plenty of dance competitions such as All The Way in 2010, World of Dance and many more. We didn’t always win but we gotten closer and worked even harder as a team. We spent plenty of time practicing at least 2-3 times a week for 2-4 hours each practice. During practices, we are either learning new choreography taught by one of our own, drilling a style or working on our own individual style by battling one another. But outside of practices, we went on trips, taught workshops and had movie nights. Every dance crew has a chant before and after practice or performance. Before we say our chant we always put our in hands in the middle then raise our hands while saying “Dance….. Fresh!”. Then we give each other feedback and go home. Now, don’t get me wrong there are times when we don’t agree on everything but we always remember to decide on whats best for our team. In the end, Fresh Dynamix has taught me so much about the power of team work and how to also be yourself.
