Essence Performs at URBANITE Fall 2008: Urbana, IL

Posted on: November 10, 2008

Gigi, Candz, Audge, and I headed to Illinois to kick off Essence’s East Coast tour!  First stop.. Urbanite in URBANa hosted by Dance 2xs Chicago!  We met Cheryl and performed our Maxt Out set that night.

Thank you Patrick Chen for having us and for allowing us the opportunity to share the stage with your family and to meet some of the dopest dancers in yo hood!DSC00472.jpg picture by boobeezee

Twas my first time experiencing the dance community in Illinois and I LOVED it.  Despite the blistering cold weather, the club was full of HOT talent that night and I didn’t want the show to end.  Big upps to everyone who performed!  Dance 2XS Portugal was probably my fave because they rocked the stage w/ so much energy with such a small group.  They came HARD!  Everyone put on great performances though!!  I felt at home within the dancers there.  Thank you Urbana for showin madd love to Essence and The Other Duck!

Thank you to everyone for dancing with us… for being igg… and for celebrating a show well done!


We attended a workshop where Shaun Evaristo, Gigi, and Candace taught BRILLIANT classes.  Sorry, I don’t have any pictures to post up, but it was a GREAT TURNOUT.  All of the classes were HUGE and took up two rooms!  I COULD BARELY SEE THE CHOREOGRAPHER FROM WHERE I WAS STANDING!  There were a BUNCH of people tearin up the floor in all three classes.  It was great to be surrounded by that energy after partying the night before!

More people showed up, I assure you.. This is after three LONG classes and after packing up, getting ready to leave the studios.  

We hope everyone had a good time!  Next stop:  Audge and I teach in Chicago!!  2 hours away!  Yippee!
