The members of Houston's SoReal -- Monkiee Boi, Eye Candy, Pat Lam, Brianbuyoiyoi, Jackstar, Burna and Good Foot -- were all friends before they formed this close-knit dance crew. And the group continues to grow as they meet more and more friends that fit right in.
But just how have all these guys and girls found their niche? Monkiee Boi, who likes to make innovative and unique gifts for people, enjoys dancing because it makes him feel like he's on a never-ending vacation. Eye Candy's love of music began when she started playing the piano, but she soon realized she'd rather be center stage than hiding behind a Steinway. And Pat Lam, who once performed on The Tony Danza Show, boasts of being able to play video games for "25 hours straight."
But they're not the only ones with hidden talents that might rear their heads during America's Best Dance Crew. Off the dance floor, Brianbuyoiyoi likes to write "cheesy" poems. For Jackstar, backstage freestyling is a must before a big show to help her get the "shakies" out. When it comes to Burna, he spends his free time working out, allowing him to eat an entire box of cereal every morning. And as for Good Foot, who grew up wanting to be a modern-day Michael Jackson, he can "slide, glide" and move his feet "like crazy."
Along with smooth, fluid dance moves, SoReal plans to use a little bit of comedy and sex appeal to keep the crowd engaged and nab the title of America's Best Dance Crew. Their style is constantly changing, but their emotions are always raw and real -- SoReal.
