Street Dance Kemp 2011, Jedovnice

Whooaa, getting back to normal day routines after SDK will take a while. The trip was crazy as-s. We arrived to the camp on Monday and headed to our bungalow, oh sorry, I ment caravan. It was not with a kitchen and shower, like we were paying for, but hey never mind. For 5 fly girls it was quite small, but our skinny asses fitted there just perfect. Only thing was that we always went to sleep at 7am and woke up EVERY morning at 9am when Jennifer Lopez - On The Floor started playing loud as *%&# in the workshop stage. Over all the kemp really was almost non stop music the whole week. And besides the JLo track the music was so nice! So day after day we started to look more tired and had to take more and more power naps.

By the way, some one stole our clean dirty laundry from that fence. Whaat?!

 


 We took part to hiphop female category, but didn't pass to the battles. Our Cleva girl Linda got to best 8 in house category, which we were really happy about! She battled against Hiro from Japan.



Girls hip hop battles were intensive. Niki (Soul Sweat) won for third time in a row. Her energy and dedication is just admirable. And the other finalist,Oomoo from France, was wery good too. We hadn't seen her before. Such a cute girl with a smooth flow.Our favourite battle was the quarterfinal Martha against Ryfa (Poland). The way Martha builds up the energy is just crazy.  As a whole the level was high this year!

Male hip hop was inspiring!! Was hard to us to pick the best 8 for the battles, but the judges did a good job. Final battle Ben vs. Majid (both from Germany) was really nice.

Crew battles were entertaining as well. Well at the quarterfinals we got a bit bored cause of all those routines and stuff. I think I only saw a few full rounds of pure dancing, really. But semifinals and the final Japan crew vs. R.A.F from France were good. Japan crew took a deserved victory. But Marvin's (R.A.F) hip hop round in the final was a killer! I think that especially the girl audience was more than pleaced with the eye candy served in the battles. Well at least we were more than happy of the view haha.

This year we decided to concentrate on partying. The music at the after parties was dope every day so for once in a while it was cool to dance in a club without broken glass everywhere and people staring at you. Cyphers were hot. People were really enjoying dancing and the music. We got to dance with guys too, but only too few know what dancing with a girl is all about. And seriously it was a dance kemp! Only minus was the last nights party where the music was like straight from Onnela. Weird shit. Maybe the real dj's wanted a day off.

We headed to Prague on Sunday after no sleep. We decided to go to a hostel our Russian friend Raf had recommended. We settled a old fashioned date there at 6pm (no iPhones involved). So we went there, but the hostel was full. But then we ran into Raf who already had organized us another hostel. Damn! That's what you could call real service. Mean while he had lost his backbag, with iPhone, iPod, headphones and all, but still had time to find us a new hostel. We were so happy for that. But his unlucky day wasn't over...while we went to eat he got into a fight at our hostel with some junkie trying to steal his money and what was left. Luckily he didn't get hurt and police caught the guy later. Buah, nice day for us but rough for Raf.

Girls in Prague.

Helsinki Urban Dance week battles


Whoa the day was hot and the venue was heated! The event took place at Simonkadun Herkku which actually turned out to be a good place for the event. It felt like we had been in a sauna for 10 hours. Huh. There were some tight battles in popping, house, locking, hip hop, bboying, krump and vogue. We both took part in hip hop, and M won the hip hop category bringing home that cash! M also did some house not house till the semifinals. Here's some clips from the day.

M's preselection


Hip Hop quarterfinals M vs Fanni and K vs Ita


Hip Hop semifinal M vs Ita


Hip Hop final M vs Vanessa


popping semifinal Biance vs Aden pop


Sandra and Vanessa kicked some hard core footworking. The footwork mixed with their smooth crazy groove!


VoGuenon showcase was amazing once again. Anne, Sari, Heikki, Henkka and Venla are just such great performers leaving the whole crowd mouth open. Our favourite girl from the day was Ama who charmed the audience in the vogue competition, just couldn't get our eyes of her.

The judges and their showcases were truly inspiring. And dj Ice-C's music too.
