    The ultra-cool 90’s show
    The unique dancers, leading the next generation, are together as the 90’s!
    The future of Japanese street dance has hit the scene.
    All together on one stage, our first show was a smash. From the mesmerized kids’ point of view, looking back
    on the genesis of Japanese street dance, we reintroduce old school style the way it was done by popular
     artists, of that gone era, with beats and dance music at epic events. On stage, with no words, each of us
    pushes the envelope, busting styles to limits that drive crowds berserk. This time the theme is TRIP.
    Let’s trip out with music and dance in the world.
