2012 World Champs The Crew from the Philippines
Dance crews and megacrews from more than 40 nations will showcase their dance skills to capture the world title and international bragging rights during the World Hip Hop Dance Championships at the Orleans Arena on Sunday, August 10. 

The highest-ranking crews will command the stage for the World Championship event that has been referred to as “the Olympics of Hip Hop Dance.” Last year, the Rockwell Family from Canada took home the top prize.

In addition, various performers are set to entertain the audience in between competition rounds. Special guest and “America’s Best Dance Crew” judge Lil Mama is set to perform. Along with a crew of dancers, the actress and rapper will deliver a high energy excerpt of her “Foundation’s Brick Nation” project, sampling the visual elements of Janet Jackson’s iconic “Rhythm Nation” to promote fitness and good health through dance, music and the arts.

“America’s Best Dance Crew” champions The Jabbawockeez will perform choreography from their new live show “PRiSM.” Members include Ben “B-Tek” Chung, Joe “Punkee” Larot, Chris “Cristyle” Gatdula, Kevin “KB” Brewer, Rynan “Kid Rainen” Paguio, Jeff “Phi” Nguyen, Phil “Swagger Boy” Tayag, Tony “Transformer” Tran.

American Olympic luger Kate Hansen will be presenting the medals to the championship winners. A self-proclaimed hip hop lover, Hansen made headlines for her high energy hip hop warm up routine to Beyoncé tracks during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Hansen won the USA Luge National Championship in October 2013 and came in 10th place in Sochi.

Showtime is 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available from $25 plus taxes and fees and can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena box office at 702-284-7777 or by visiting
