Hailing from Philadelphia, Phresh Select was born in the spirit of unity and brotherly love. Once members of rival crews, Rukkus, Lil-O, Riot the Virus, Smart Mark, Blao and Poppin' Jon came together to create something positive on the rough streets of their hometown.
Rukkus is old-school all the way. For this vinyl-loving Michael Jackson fan, dance isn't a hobby, it's an addiction.
Proud college graduate Virgil "Lil-O" Gadson thinks that versatility is the key to success. The all-around dancer may have a hankering for chicken and strawberry lemonade, but what he's really after is a taste of victory.
As co-founder of the educational hip-hop crew, Face Da Phlave, Riot the Virus knows a thing or two about teaching. His next lecture topic? Phresh Select: How the hottest dancers in the nation took America's Best Dance Crew 2 by storm.
A krumping aficionado, Smart Mark has always wanted to be a dancer. The Chris Brown fan has been waiting for his moment for a long time, and when it comes, he refuses to let it slip through his fingers.
Motivated by his students, soul music fan Blao believes that his crew's stage presence will carry them to the top. Though he's strayed a long way from his childhood dream of being a zoologist, this b-boy specialist hasn't looked back once.
Poppin' Jon hopes his crew can inspire other Philadelphians to set aside their differences and work together. Tired of the violence that plagues his hometown, he wants to spread Phresh Select's message of unity and brotherly love.
In a nutshell: Versatility is the name of the game for this funky sextet. Combining the top dancers from Philly's toughest crews, Phresh Select is surely a force to be reckoned with.
