Best Dance Crew Orange County 2011 - Poreotics
The rest of the country only wishes it could tear up a dance floor like Poreotics, six gyrating dudes from Westminster who won the fifth season of America's Best Dance Crew, along with bragging rights and $100,000. Matt Nguyen, Can Nguyen, Charles Nguyen, Lawrence Devera, Justin Valles and Chad Mayate mash popping, choreography and robotics with a clean technique and crisp body isolations humbled by a light-hearted, theatrical presence. And as if snagging the top spot on Randy Jackson's show isn't enough of a seal of approval, the crew also finished first in the U.S. division of the 2009 Hip-Hop Internationals. After the championship catapulted it to stardom, the local group traveled to Australia for its "Tic Toc Tour." If you missed it, you can still see Poreotics in action in music videos for both Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber.
