Happy Summer! Love, 8 Flavahz Crew
Heyyyyy, everybody. How have your summers been so far? Fun? Relaxing? A little bit lazy?
Well, while all us normal humans have been lounging by the pool,* the superbeings of the 8 Flavahz crew have been crazy productive. In the month of July alone, they’ve given us two new videos—delicious nuggets of dance goodness that are the perfect distraction for these long summer afternoons.
Love. These. Ladies. (screenshot from “Let It Go”)
First came “No Flex Zone,” choreographed by Will “WilldaBeast” Adams and Janelle Ginestra. It’s a compilation of choreo snippets set to all the most earworm-y songs from the past few years (“No Flex Zone,” yes, but also stuff we’d forgotten how much we loved, like “Chicken Noodle Soup” and “Get Your Freak On”). We were especially happy to see Camren Bicondova—who’s been busy with her starring role on a little show called “Gotham” recently—back with 8 Flavahz for this one.
And then they gifted us with “Let It Go,” a Brian Friedman–choreographed extravaganza set on a high school football field. Why that location, aside from all the amazing choreo opportunities presented by bleachers? The clip is actually a promotion for #EastLosDanceBattle, a contest linked to the July 15 season premiere of Hulu’s high school soap “East Los High.” If you submit a dance video set to Chonique Sneed’s “Let It Go,” you could win a year’s subscription to Hulu. So, get on that, everybody!
Happy summer, guys. May the amazing 8 Flavahz ladies inspire us all to spend more of it dance class.
*Jokes! We know you’ve been working your buns off in summer intensives and at Nationals. You’ve earned your pool time.
