Los Angeles – It may well be over 9,000 miles separating Australia and Las Vegas, but that’s not going to stop the Royal Knights of Australia as they plan their road trip to Hip Hop International’s 11th annual dance competition. Being an affiliate of the Royalty Academy and Royalty Crew, this young varsity crew wants to follow in the footsteps of their adult crew counterpart Royalty Crew that has participated at HHI in previous years.
Royal Knights manager Aron Koroheke adds, “Our older mentor crew (Royalty Crew) competed in our countries HHI. They choreograph and helped us get to where we are now.”
The crew was originally formed as a part of the Royalty Academy with the supervision and mentoring by members of the Royalty Crew.
In Australia, the crew has become known for their entertainment and tricks. Aron says, “For HHI were doing something a little different.”
It’s been fun and exciting gearing up for Hip Hop International, but their main challenge has been raising the funds to make that long trip to Las Vegas. “Trying to fundraise the money to get to Las Vegas to compete its been a long and very stressful journey.”
Not to fret as the boys were able to raise the funds to compete in this y ear’s varsity division of HHI.
No matter win or lose the boys will take their experience of competing in HHI as a positive life experience by gaining more knowledge of dance and meeting new people from around the world with similar experiences.
