What happens when legend Brian Friedman teaches at WilldaBeast and Janelle Ginestra's fabulous IMMA SPACE? A merging of the B Free and ImmaBEAST tribes that includes a mind-boggling number of A-list Hollywood dancers. Ryan Parma was there to capture the whole thing on film, and the result is basically the class video to end all class videos.

What happens when Willdabeast Adams gets two of his most amazing lilBEASTS—the pint-sized Reese Hatala and Phoenix Lil' Mini, aka LULAS ("Love U Like A Sister")—to make a video set to a throwback mashup of songs? So, so much cuteness. And so, so much 🔥🔥🔥 .

Even if you've never been to L.A., you probably have a solid idea of what class at Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood is like. You can picture the vibrant red walls; you can feel the waves of dancers feeding off one another's explosive energy. Why? Because you—and millions of other dance fans—have watched countless class videos filmed at the center.

Class videos are a VIP pass, taking dancers and non-dancers alike inside the commercial world's hottest studios. And people are watching them obsessively, sharing them on platforms across the web, helping them rack up tens of millions of views. We turned to some of the industry's key players to find out more about what makes the class video format uniquely appealing.

Oh, you knew it was coming.

As soon as Beyoncé dropped the internet-breaking "Formation" video—complete with epic choreo by Dana Foglia, JaQuel Knight and Chris Grant—you could practically hear choreographers around the world dropping everything to work on "Formation" routines of their own.

But you probably weren't expecting those routines to be QUITE as good as WilldaBeast's "Formation" creation.

Then again, do we expect anything less than perfection from WilldaBeast these days? Because that's exactly what his spin on the instant Bey classic delivers: take-no-prisoners, make-no-excuses perfection.

The video (filmed by Tim Milgram, naturally) even features one of Beyoncé's own Super Bowl ladies, the fabulous China Taylor. (Her lip-syncing skills actually give me chills.) And as always, we get to see the stylings of a whole crowd of WilldaBeast devotees, including Jade Chynoweth, Sean Lew, Will Simmons and (does she sleep??) Kaycee Rice.

Watch them slay. (They slay.) All day. (ALL DAY.)

OK, I know it's a little bit early for this, but I'm gonna go ahead and tell you guys my New Year's resolution: In 2015, I resolve to be half...no, a third as cool as the girls of Will "WilldaBeast" Adams' LilBeasts.

Yaass, ladies.

You know we've been all about the LilBeasts for a while now. So many of the hip-hop minis catching our eyes these days turn out to be WilldaBeast disciples. (Exhibit A: Taylor Hatala.) He sure has a gift for finding and cultivating swag in its earliest of stages.

So why the sudden, new-found need to declare my love and admiration for the lady LilBeasts, in particular? A couple weeks ago, WilldaBeast posted a new video to Ciara's "That's Right," featuring Sydney Rosefsky, Jordyn Jones, Tati McQuay, Kyndall Harris, Kaycee Rice and Lexee Smith. Um...it's amazing.

Got to go start practicing. 2015 is just around the corner!

Sometimes, all you need to squash your #SundayScaries is an amazing new concept video to watch on repeat.

You guys, it's happening! It's really happening! Remember when we first found out Step Up 6 was a thing but we didn't have tons of details? Behold, tons of details. (And these details are 🔥🔥🔥.)

Willdabeast, who's serving as choreographer of the project, posted these behind-the-scenes videos on his Instagram page and they're filled with tons of dance-y goodness, plus a discussion with the creative team (which includes Janelle Ginestra 🎉).

The clips also feature lots of our fave dancers like Jade Chynoweth, Simrin Player, Dominique Battiste, Noah Tratree, Jake Landgrebe and Jalen Preston.

Still no word yet on whether or not we'll be able to see the film in the States, but for now, let these tide you over:

Happy Monday!

Here's the official teaser poster!

Did you know that the Step Up series is crazy, super-duper popular in Asia? So popular, in fact, that there's a Step Up 6 happening—in Chinese?

It's true, it's already underway, and it looks REALLY legit. As the Step Up franchise celebrates its 10th (!) birthday, Lionsgate is partnering with China's Infinity Pictures/CMC and Yue Hua Entertainment Culture Communications to produce a Chinese-language sequel to the series, designed for Asian audiences. But based on what Instagram is telling us, the cast also includes a lot of Hollywood's best dancers, all members of the #immaBEAST family—WilldaBeast himself, Janelle Ginestra, Simrin Player, Jade Chynoweth and Sean Lew among them. It looks like they just returned from shooting in China.

Step Up 6 is directed by Ron Yuan, whose martial arts background means we can probably expect a lot of exhilarating dance/martial arts fusion. We don't know a ton about the script; Deadline Hollywood says it "celebrates the underdog, bringing characters from different worlds together through dance."

Most importantly: WILL WE BE ABLE TO SEE THIS AMAZINGNESS IN THE U.S.? You guys, we don't know. But obviously we'll tell you as soon as we hear anything. Ears to the ground, friends!

Imagine your ideal dance party. It probably features infectious tunes, an amazing crew and plenty of space to let loose. In fact, it might be safe to say that your ideal dance party looks exactly like this new class video from Will "Willdabeast" Adams.

Shot by Kenny Washington and choreographed to Bruno Mars' "24k Magic," this video is the definition of "good vibes only." It also happens to feature tons of dancers we're totally obsessed with, including Baily Sok, Janelle Ginestra, Sean Lew, Jade Chynoweth, Trinity Inay and Kaycee Rice

 

Can we just take a second to talk about how Ginestra is SLAYING this choreo? She even dressed the dorky, old-school part, in mismatched shoe laces and what appears to be a vintage tennis shirt. Aside from that, her feet move so fast that she looks sped up. But we know Ginestra's performance is 100% real.
