AMERICA'S BEST DANCE CREW : Deshaun Westley
The new season of Randy Jackson's America's Best Dance Crew premiered on August 9th with an amazing performance by the first openly gay and transgender dance crew takes the stage. Dashaun Westley is a member of the popular dance crew Vogue Evolution. They are one of nine teams competing for the title of America's best dance crew. Dashaun is also a model and actor whom I recently had the pleasure of working with. He was great to work with and very professional.
The Vogue Evolution squad is also a community-focused organization, using dance to educate and empower gay youth of color. Their style is a mixture of historic New York City ball culture and hip hop dance.
Dance crews on America's Best Dance Crew compete in themed challenges each week, some within their genre of dance and others that challenge the crews' versatility. Nearly 20 million votes were cast in the season three finale, and there is little reason to believe the show's popularity will wane in season four, exposing the ball scene and the openly-LGBT youth that have crafted it to millions of Americans.
Check out and vote for Vogue Evolution every week on MTV...
