Jabbawockeez Unmasked

MTV’s hot show America’s Best Dance Crew has been raging along, and now only four dance crews are left of the original 12 finalists. Yet most people still don’t know how Asian American-dominated this competition is.

While Kaba Modern, the only all-Asian American crew, has been dancing into the hearts of viewers with intricate choreography, killer isolations and precision timing, another crew that has risen to the top four is also predominantly Asian American: the oft-masked Jabbawockeez.

Hailing from up and down the West Coast, this group is loved for its imagination, athletic stunts and crowd-pleasing creativity. Jeff Nguyen from Phoenix, Ariz., loves Vietnamese pho and plays a six-string. Rynan Shawn Paguio from San Diego is a guitar player and a newlywed. Ben Chung from Mission Hills, Calif., is a born-again Christian who loves Fight Night Round 3 on the Xbox. Besides dancing, Kevin Brewer from Sacramento is also a music producerSounds-Like-Money May-07 and emcee. Phil Tayag, also from Sacramento, is a father of two who also makes music. Chris Gatdula, from Las Vegas, snowboardsSnowboards Nov-07 , edits videos and does graphic design, on top of being a dance instructor.
