Dancer/Crew Spotlight: Team 2.0 (St. Louis, MO)

Fresh out of the Lou aka St. Louis, MO is a duo of dancers who are helping put the MidWest on the map for up and coming street dancers! Rian (2.0) and Tabitha (Tabbz) better known as Team 2.0 are sharing their passion for dance and street styles through many different avenues and channels around the MidWest and through social medias.

These two grew not only in their passion for dance but grew into a relationship between the two! We all know about NappyTabs but now we have Tabbz2.0 to look out for! Having only known these two for a few months, I have seen their dedication to not only dance but to serving the community around St. Louis. I hope in some way you all appreciate being able to learn about different dancers from different scenes!

What street dance styles influence your current style?

We are true street dancers. Completely self taught; We use all styles of dance as an inspiration. We can do choreography but enjoy freestyle dance as it shows extreme creativity and individual style, while embracing the music and making beats come alive.

How did Team 2.0 come to be?

We started out as good friends with a passion for creativity. The more we danced together, the more we learned and the better we became. As we grew together so did our feelings for one another. We found how capatable we are and that we have very simular interests. We both can hear music and it moves us, literally. By some unexplanable magnetic attraction We found one another and are helping eachother be the best at anything we put our minds to.
