Fil-Am group Jabbawockeez receives Living Legend of Hip Hop award

The Filipino-American dance group Jabbawockeez  recently received the Living Legend of Hip Hop Award at the World Hip Hop Dance Championship Finals at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
The prestigious award was conferred to the group on August 5 in front of an audience of 6,000 including the world’s best dance crews from over 40 nations.
Hip Hop International (HHI) President, Howard Schwartz said that the Jabbawockeez made history by being the first dance crew to receive the prestigious award in 11 years, a news release posted on the the HHI website said.
“The dance crew’s unmatched mystic and captivating performance style launched the group from street credible to world famous through live performances and high profile media attention,” Schwartz said.
“In the process, they have inspired many of their fellow street dancers to pursue careers and reach for their dreams in dance,” he added.
The HHI is the organizer of the USA and World Hip Hop Dance Championships and also created “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew” where the Jabbawockeez were the champions of the first season of the show.
The Living Legend of Hip Hop Award is given to individuals for their contribution to the world of hip hop culture.
Some popular awardees include Randy Jackson, Mc Hammer, DJ Kool Herc and Boogaloo Sam to name a few.

Jabbawockeez is a dance crew that has a unique style that has become immensely popular in the dance community.
Hiding their identities and expressions through wearing their signature white masks and gloves, they have changed the way people view dancing by letting their audience focus on the actions of the group as a whole and not just with individuals.
After being crowned the champions of MTV’s “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew,” their talent and fame went viral and spread worldwide.
Jabbawockeez has appeared in the following shows:
  •  “The Bachelorette”
