The Rise

This past weekend was unforgettable! The dance crew I am part of, Elektro Academy, headed to Irvine for a hip hop competition hosted by Chapkis Dance Family called Collaboration SoCal. We definitely represented The Rise and Arizona very well considering we took home 2nd place and the Outlawz took 1st place!

Holding our trophy!!

Weekends where I get to do what I love are my favorite, especially when it’s with some of the best people I know. Throughout this year, The Rise is really going to rise and make a mark on the dance world and I’m so excited that I get to be a part of it. The Rise represents some of the best dance crews in AZ, Elektro Academy, the Outlawz, the Elektro Botz, Elektro Elite, Elektrolyttlez, and the Elektrolytes. All of these crews are made up of some seriously talented dancers, so make sure you keep your eye out for us as we continue to compete.

One thing we really need help with is getting a new dance studio to practice in. We are currently in a room far too small to hold the amount of dancers we have and we are incapable of having more than one practice going at one time because of the lack of space. If you would like to help us out, please check out our gofundme account: . Also, be sure to check out The Rise Clothing! You can find them on instagram and twitter @theriseco_ !

  1. I precisely desired to thank you very much once more. I do not know the things that I could possibly have created without those ways shown by you on this subject. It was an absolute intimidating setting for me personally, but spending time with this specialised manner you processed it took me to cry for joy. I’m happier for your support and trust you realize what a powerful job your are providing educating the mediocre ones all through your web page. Probably you haven’t got to know all of us.
