LAS VEGAS, July 7 /PRNewswire/ — UBC International announced today that the world-famous dance crew, The Jabbawockeez, will make a special guest appearance at the Ultimate B-Boy Championship being held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Friday, August 6 and Saturday, August 7. As the original champions of Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew, the Jabbawockeez were the first crew to leave the ABDC stage victorious. Using their signature white masks, the well-respected dance crew is best known for their creativity, one-of-a-kind choreography, athleticism and intricate synchronization. With sold-out runs of their inspirational show “Jabbawockeez presents MUS.I.C” already completed in May and June, they will return to MGM Grand’s Hollywood Theatre after UBC for a third run from August 19 to 25. As the Jabbawockeez continue to bring hip-hop dance into a wider mainstream audience, UBC is honored to feature a dance crew of their caliber.
