Gilbert, AZ – The Elektrolyttlez Dance Crew is the Jr Crew to The Elektrolytes, America’s Best Dance Crew – Season 7. Our crew formed in April of 2011 through an audition held by Sal Banuelos, creator & choreographer. Elektolyttlez are a group of young dancers from all around the Metro Phoenix area. A lot of our crew members knew each other from other dance companies, competitions, conventions, workshops, battles & studios around the valley. This talented group of young dancers have various training in all different forms of dance from hip hop, breaking, popping, house, wacking, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, ballet etc. The Elektrolyttlez crew members often compete in street competitions & battles together. In just their first year of being together they managed to pull off a 3rd place win at World of Dance in San Diego and a 2nd Place win at Boogiedabeat. These are two very well known & difficult competitions. The Eletkrolyttlez all have a passion for dancing & they love to share it with their surrounding community through special performances. They would love to come to Hip Hop International & achieve success in such a well known & respected World competition. This will be their 2nd time competing at Hip Hop International.
The challenges of having crew members from all over the valley are distance, time constraints & the difficulty of working with so many different commitments and schedules. We manage to pull it off & love when we are working hard together with Sal doing our choreography. Recently we added a new choreographer to the crew – Fro Styles & four new members. Now we have a Jr Varsity Crew & a Varsity Crew. Our crew members are: Alyssa A.K.A. Alley Cat, Angelica A.K.A. Jelly, Maggie A.K.A. Magnificent, Amy A.K.A. Tank Girl, Michaela A.K.A. Tra Bul, Michael A.K.A. Top Gun , Jared A.K.A. J-Rod, Phoenix, Jaron A.K.A. Future, Dominic A.K.A. ShowOff, Robert A.K.A. Ojos, Kalani, Lexie & Tatum.
