Who could have forgotten this “Jokers” from the recently concluded WSB Groove Manila Finals? Man, they may not have managed to get to the top 4 but they really brought it down in the competition. I’d say their performance is one of the night’s highlight. And this is enough for them to get featured in Dance Manila’s In the Middle! Spotlight on them please!

The Groove Unlimited is a Davao City (Philippines) based urban-dance crew composed of students and young professionals who spare their extra time cultivating their skills in order to relieve them from the stresses of their everyday lives, and as well as to complement their academic training with physical activities and social inter-action. For almost 8 years now, the crew has managed to survive and excel in the local entertainment scene given the pressures of their engagements and the responsibilities they each carry in their home, school and work. The Groove Unlimited grew up learning from the benefits of media and meeting other crews, choreographers, and directors. Having no experience in formal dance training, the crew continues to seek education and improvement from anything they lay their hands on and from anyone who whole-heartedly offers guidance or help in whatever form.
Through the years, the Groove Unlimited has developed a certain level of awareness and concern that lead them to initiate an assembly of dancers they call the Groove Unlimited Dance Community. This alliance was built in order to bridge the gap between crews of different levels of experience and bring them together to share their passion with each other.
The Groove Unlimited, through the Groove Unlimited Dance Community aims, not only to cultivate potentials and improve skills, but also to promote goodwill among the local performers. And through “Groove Stylz”, the crew is making an effort to reform the dance community in our area, wherein in this very simple event, sub-activities are conducted in order to address the issues concerning the dance community as whole.
In the near future, Groove Unlimited hopes to develop and bring out individuals that will contribute to the pride and honor of our country in whatever field.
“to unite at least a part of our society through sharing our passion in our craft”
Anyway, here’s a sample of their dance routines:
