At Dance Spirit, we’re super sad that one of our favorite dance shows has been cancelled after seven seasons. “America’s Best Dance Crew” not only showed off amazing dancers of all ages, but it introduced the audience to the challenges of coming up with unique and interesting choreography week after week. To celebrate the awesome accomplishments of the “ABDC” competitors, here’s a look back at our favorite moments from the winners of each season:
Season 1: The Jabbawockeez
On week one, this masked crew set the bar incredibly high. Every one of their performances was great, but their very first one blows me away to this day.
Season 2: Super Cr3w
When the Season 2 champs performed at “ABDC Champions for Charity”, they added an extra member to their crew—the cutest little member ever! Nothing makes me happier than seeing little kids steal the spotlight from the grown ups. This boy is amazing!
Season 3: Quest Crew
I love seeing props used in creative ways. On week 7, one dancer spins on his head on top of a piano, slowing down and speeding up in perfect time to the music, and it was pure awesome.
Season 4: We Are Heroes
OK, so this dance was actually performed on Season 6, when the ladies returned to perform. But you’ve gotta love how they prove that girls truly do run the world. Could any male hip hopper pull off back flips in heels? I don’t think so.
Season 5: I am Me
This crew is just non-stop with the energy, especially in their week 8 routine to Kanye West music. They give a whole new meaning to the "Dougie"! We especially love spunky Chachi—click here to read why.
Season 7: Elektrolytes
The newest “ABDC” winners truly mastered the art of “gloving” in this performance. Too cool!
