    These shaded showmen inspired by robots aim to entertain the dance world with their unexpected humor and revolutionary mixed style. Over the last couple of years, the Poreotix members have laboriously honed their craft of popping and robotic movement and are at the pinnacle of their game. The way in which the crew blends the different dance styles gives them a distinctive animated look, and their integration of humor makes their performances fiercely entertaining. Poreotix are true showmen and never perform without their trademark shades. They use them as a tool to hide emotion so they can provide unexpected twists in their routine, taking the audience from serious to funny without tipping their hand.

    Unfortunately, crew member Justin Valles has more on his plate than just winning the America's Best Dance Crew title. During this season's auditions, Justin's father was hospitalized for liver and kidney failure. He has since been released from the hospital but has been rejected for a liver transplant. They are unsure how much longer Justin's dad can survive without a new liver. This obviously weighs heavily on Justin's mind, and he feels blessed to be able to give his family the joy of watching him dance in these unfortunate times.

    This crew has captured a special style and is extremely confident they will be crowned the next winner of America's Best Dance Crew.
