First spawning from a chemistry of battling both with and against each other in the bboy scene, a camaraderie of friendship developed, and Super Cr3w was formed as a catalyst for the three crews to join forces. Their talent is unquestionable and their abilities are endless. Since appearing on ABDC the crew has opened three dance studios including one in Las Vegas. In addition the boys can be seen in movies such as Battle of The Year, Planet Bboy, Meet the Spartans, You Got Served, and Honey 2. The boys have also appeared in music videos and toured with Fergie, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Sean Paul, Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney and Missy Elliott, performed and taught at the first White House Dance Series hosted by Michelle Obama, and are a part of the principal cast of the “MUS.I.C” show at the Monte Carlo and “PRISM” at the Luxor Hotel alongside their fellow crew, the Jabbawockeez. Individually, the bboys have been living their lives to the fullest; Mike Murda has moved to LA after a few years of being in Las Vegas and now works as a DJ when he is not dancing, and Ben has two adorable boys. However, lucky for their fans, these boys are ready to put their personal endeavors aside, and once again unite to bring everything they have back to the ABDC stage.

We Are Heroes is not just a name to these ladies- it is a powerful title that they can own up to, and they would like to think their public exposure has made them “heroes” to many people across the globe. The crewmembers wish to play a positive and challenging role not only for themselves, but for other dancers and artists as they continue to take chances, know their foundations, and create a dance style that is new to the public eye. After winning season four the girls had a whirlwind of appearances and performances around the world. They appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show three times, were featured Oprah, performed with artists such as Rihanna, and Justin Bieber, and for corporations such as Toshiba, Nike, and Disney. In the past couple of years the group has gone their separate ways, pursuing individual dance careers in different facets, however once the girls heard about the show returning they were ecstatic to get the crew back together, and are coming for the other crews with an arsenal loaded with both new members and new tricks.

They refer to their style as “brain banging”- a series of connections and large scale visuals that create shapes and puzzles with the human body, which has proven to be a lasting hit with fans across the globe. After winning the title of America’s Best Dance Crew on season six, I.aM.mE focused on taking the Brain Bang style worldwide and spreading the knowledge that they gained to the next generation of young dancers. Both individually and as a team, many doors have opened for them since their victory, and they love bringing their creativity to other competitions, showcases, corporate events, and YouTube videos. On a professional level, the crewmembers can been seen in Step Up 4, as well as music videos for Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and LMFAO. Additionally the opportunity to work for companies and artists such as Cirque Du Soleil, Honda, BMW, The LXD, Skrillex, and LMFAO has also taken the crew’s confidence and showmanship to another level. Armed with four new, talented members, I.aM.mE is excited to show how far the Brain Bang style has come in only a few years time, and ready to once again take on the competition.
