ReQuest dance crew grooves in PH
MANILA, Philippines - Last March 14 to 15, Manila and Cebu grooved with ReQuest Dance Crew, a multi-awarded all-girl dance group from New Zealand.
Formed in 2007 out of The Palace Dance Studio, ReQuest is one of the 5 crews belonging to the highly-acclaimed “Royal Family” alongside In-Laws, Misfits, Sorority and Bubblegum.
Parris Goebbel is lead choreographer of the 8-member troupe. Her dancing talent caught the eye of Jennifer Lopez who asked her to choreograph her “Dance Again” World Tour. ReQuest was featured in the music video for Lopez’ hit, “Goin’ In.”
ReQuest can dance with swagger because of the number of awards they’ve earned. In 2009, they bagged first place in the Varsity Crews division of the prestigious World Hip Hop Dance Championships in Las Vegas. The following year, they placed first, this time in the Adults Crew category.
Pinoys got to see hip hop dance royalty perform when ReQuest, along with guest crew Legit Status, performed in Ayala Malls in the capital and Cebu. Legit Status has been the Philippines’ representative to the World Hip Hop Dance Championships since 2009.
The troupe also conducted hip hop dance lessons in Groove Central Dance Studio in Quezon City from March 19 to 21.
