Man! Here we are 9 months in and we have hit 50,000 views! This is such a huge accomplishment for us, not in terms of popularity but in terms of more than 50,000 people influenced for the better by Hip Hop Dance! We have accomplished so much in these 9 months and there is so much more to accomplish! We have covered dancers, crews, studios, events, clothing, and even more through the website, our YouTube, our Facebook, and now on GorillaLeak.com! All of you who have been interviewed, shared videos with us, invited us to events, and even just viewed the pages have been a part of this success!
Our first real post or interview came when we interviewed in Meluchi Emeh back on June 18, 2011 – HERE! It’s amazing to see how far we have come from really starting the blog that day! It’s a real testament to following your dreams and sometimes missing sleep because there is something more to accomplish!
Then we did our first post of Hip Hop International HERE, which we ended up getting invited to cover the event after interviewing crews and dancers for the event! Here was one of our first interviews posted from Hip Hop International! We interviewed Chachi from I AM ME Crew:
You can see the whole playlist for HHI HERE
If I wrote out everything in this post that happened to us after HHI, it would literally take up a few pages of actual blog space haha! I think one of my favorite posts on here has been the battle that Bboy Steelo fought through with his aneurysms and recovery! The fundraisers, the faith, the strength, the support, and the miracle of his recovery have been a real strength! HERE
Then there’s the hard work I put in to contacting the Les Twins to get an interview when they were on the Tour! I can’t tell you how many Facebook posts or e-mails I sent, but I sent a lot! haha! Hard work and persistence ALWAYS pays off!! Here’s a bit of our interview with Laurent from Les Twins:
Now we have Step X Step Dance in Malaysia (Thanks Waves) – , Netherlands (Thanks Stefani), and now in the Baltic States (Thanks Stefani and Ken)! We will be expanding even more coming soon! We have shirts being printed this week or next week and we are doing a lot with 625 Society!
Here’s A Picture of Me at SYTYCD Auditions in LA this last weekend with our NEW SHIRTS:
