You probably know the JabbaWockeeZ as the season one winners of “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Since then, this group of 7 guys has kept busy, appearing as guest performers on “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” and touring with New Kids on the Block and the Jonas Brothers. Their theatrical style, emphasized by white gloves and masks, is best experienced live–and now’s your chance. The JabbaWockeeZ’ full-length show, MÜS.I.C. (pronounced muse-eye-see), opens tonight for a 20-day run at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. DS spoke with crew member Jeff “Phi” Nguyen about the JabbaWockeeZ newest endeavor.
Dance Spirit: The show is described as the “story of inspiration.” What’s the narrative you tell?
Phi: It’s the story of our group. You learn where we came from and what got us to where we are today. It’s portrayed through dance and music, and we incorporate bits of narration. There’s also a light in the show that represents our friend Gary [Kendall, a crew member who passed away in 2007]. He was a major influence on our group: In MÜS.I.C., that light floats around so that he’s a character throughout the whole show.
