Xtreme Dance Force came together the old-fashioned way: a series of auditions. Since then, their super-strict training regimen has honed this suburban Chicago crew into some of the hardest-hitting dancers in the business. Now, JC Renzetti, Nicholas Neri, Step Up, Papa Smurf, Armando Cardona and Pino are ready to take America's Best Dance Crew by storm!
Leading their elite roster is JC Renzetti, future governor of Illinois (he hopes), and brother of Sam Renzetti, the crew's director. Next up is Nicholas Neri, a pure-blood Italian who loves The Godfather and big family meals. His crewmate, Sergio Lopez, is also a fan of Italian food and a self-proclaimed "closet nerd."
The hardworking Step Up promises to "never fake the funk." Also keeping it real is Papa Smurf, a recovering cancer patient whose pre-dance ritual is doing a series of push-ups. Fellow Xtreme Dance Force member and push-up enthusiast Armando Cardona is excited to be living the life of a dancer who made it all the way to America's Best Dance Crew. Rounding out the crew is Pino, a native Filipino who loves a good mojito.
Xtreme Dance Force may not have as much street cred as some of the dance crews from the 'hood, but they think that their slightly preppy style will make them America's sweethearts. That's not to say that these suburbanites can't throw down, as the winners of several major competitions already, this is a crew with skills of the highest caliber.
