DHDF in full the Dallas Hip-Hop Dance Festival is the new thing for hip hop dancers. It provides a platform for any hip hop dancer despite their age. It is a representation of all types and forms of hip hop that have been originally found and established. The DHDF has a vision; it is aiming at creating the experience that both spectators and dancers will never forget. They intend, on that weekend, to inspire, educate and show off both established and growing talent and they are specifically targeting the Southwest. It is the first ever such platform in the Dallas and they hope to enrich everyone present and give them a positive experience.
They have made open their festival to crews, studios, companies and anyone else from within the south. The weekend entails a workshop, battle, competition and showcase. They have narrowed down the very broad hip hop genre and are specifically working on improving the side of hip hop dance that is more realistic and positive.
The master class is one of the series of events that have been organized to take place before the festival as a way of getting ready for the big thing. This class has been placed under the very able and super talented Tricia Miranda; she performed as Missy in the Super Bowl show. This female artist has built quite a name for herself. She started training at 4!!In 2001 in Los Angeles, Tricia made her great talent known and she soon became the new thing whenever anyone was talking about great female hip hop dancers. She has danced for many great artists including Beyoncé, Usher, Neyo, and Jay-z among many others.
Then there is the Battle which will be held sometime before the big event. Those who are interested have been advised to keep checking DHDF Facebook page and website for updates. The venue is the Holiday Inn Park Cities in Dallas. The winners will walk away with trophies and cash prizes. There will be an entry fee of $20 for those who would wish to battle and $10 for the spectators.
There is a DHDF workshop where great choreographers such as Dejan Tubic, Sean Bankhead, Luam and their very own Keith Clark come in to train the participants. The 2015 DHDF is expected, as their tradition dictates, to select around seven dancers that will showcase their choreography at the show. The 2015 faculty consists of Sean Bankhead, Lisette Bustamante, Chonique Sneed, Jenny Durbin Smith and Robert Hernandez.
Then there is the show where the best two crews become DHDF champions of the year. It took place at Majestic Theatre in Dallas.
DHDF has cool collections that say a lot about what they do and it screams positive hip hop. The triple D B-boy is one awesome one. It goes really well on someone who loves sophistication. Having known so much about JDM culture, this one honestly goes well for JDM enthusiasts. A cool look and a highly modified cool car equals to a cool guy.
Japanese Modified Car Culture has only swelled in international popularity since its humble beginnings in the 70’s, however, JDM in films has simply exploded.
Hollywood and film sets have always used cars as eye candy for movies. They are an instant upgrade for films, inspiring a new generation of JDM enthusiast. The fourth installment of Fast and Furious (Tokyo Drift) Hollywood franchise sparked many fans interest for cool Japanese modifications and speed, provoking more movie production sets to feature the JDM industry’s hottest rides on the streets.
For those who desire more authentic films on JDM cars, check out Japanese movies such as Drift and Drift 2. JDM is not a fad nor is it a hobby...it is an ever growing and expanding lifestyle adopted by the millions worldwide!
JDM or the Japanese Domestic market as we all know is all about standing out. Uniqueness and sophistication are the basis of this culture. This is for real car enthusiasts who will never settle for something less when they know there is a way to a cooler modification. Well-defined by the JDM inspired cars and style. It is a choice only for those who would do just about anything to be on the cool side. Having to go through the hell of having to be unnecessarily stopped by cops all the time for having a car that is modified is not funny but for these car lovers, it is worth the price.
Talking about standing out and having a definition to oneself, everything around you has to be done in a particular way. If you choose to be cool, you have no choice but to do it all the way. This is why they have a culture that ought to be adopted by those so into JDM. What is the point of having a great and powerful car when everything around you is sub-standard? You may as well have an ordinary car and live an ordinary life. This is not an option for our friends; they choose to be different and do it all the way.
Music and dance has been known to define people. On many occasions, JDM has been associated with the hip-hop style of music. We all know that this particular controversial genre of music is associated with money, not just ordinary figures but huge figures. Hip-hop artists are on top of the game and it is just obvious why anyone who loves this culture would love to listen to and be associated with this music. If you closely look into the dressing of most people in the JDM culture you will be surprised to note how a large number of them have these T-shirts that have the calligraphy that is strongly associated with hip-hop music and artists. They find it cool to be dressed that way.
Of course we are not saying that they are restricted to hip-hop. Anything they listen to has to be cool, you will not easily find them listening to music that has not made a remarkable impact in terms of bringing in money. I think I totally agree with them on this because it will not make sense to play a song that is loudly ‘crying out’ brokenness when what you are driving is screaming the very opposite, unless you have borrowed the car and have no clue of its worth.
As for dancing, this culture has been greatly associated with the Dallas Dance Fest. Yes, it is still hip-hop and you really should check out the big names involved in this. I am saying this again, it doesn’t have to be hip-hop, it is all about the big names, great style and mostly the money associated with it. I mean, it is JDM! What do you expect?
