I know, I know it’s been a minute since I’ve splashed on my website. In the midst of school and moving yes I’ve fell off. But what better way to break my silence than with The Rookies. The phenomenal international dance crew from France again with the assistance of World Of Dance blesses YouTube with another classic dance video shot in Black and White to enthuse that classic feel directed by Charlie Luccini. The “Spirit of Silence” is like a perfect marriage as Verbal Click laces the track with Indian Click and The Rookies provide the stellar movement to every flute, every bass line, every snare and every harmony. So Shhhhhh and watch the loud movement of intricate bliss.
I like this crew because they are comedic and energetic so full of life. Nothing like just freestyling to a hot instrumental introducing each member of The Rookies World crew. Each member holds their own with the skill, flare and comedic prowess in what as a dancer is displaying the joy of dance and the joy of the movement. Makes you want to go back school, right? If only school was like this, the closet thing to the movie Fame and Maryland School of the Arts in Step Up I and II lol. The video was directed by Charlie Lucinni and the World of Dance will be doing a piece on each member so stay tuned!
Ian Eastwood goes back to home to Chicago to film this Justin Timberlake‘s “Strawberry Bubblegum” piece. Directed by Commonless who’s definitely making a name for their selves dropping quality videos. Choreography by Ian joined by dancers Ade Willis and Kris Rhodes displays his growth as a choreoagrapher and me myself enjoy the progress of this kid. Also I can’t go without saying that he chose a perfect female lead in the hilarious and beautiful Megan Batoon. This was a smooth and clean piece as usual. It looked like so much fun just as it did in the end credits with friends and family. And please after you peep the video please read Mr. Eastwood’s comments on dancing and life in general. It’s a perspective that I think people should practice in their everyday life. Enjoy people, friends and family while enjoying your blessings and it comes out in his performance in other words as a whole very inspiring.
The Rookies who hail from France make their first performance in the U.S at World of Dance. They sure didn’t perform like rookies.

Yep had to go back a little bit with Dance Cinematics from The World of Dance on these Rookies cats. What’s better than letting it go in what I call the dance alley. So from now if you see some kids in the alley blaring music don’t be afraid it’s just The Rookies World lettin’ lose to an antoxicating track with that Max Romeo‘s “Chase The Devil” sample. And oh yea I’m still madd I can’t find out the name of this version. I need this in my life! lol “Outer space!” The flow, the moves, the track, the extra flavor with a side of fiyah from these ladies and gents. Charlie Luccinni is at again on the direction of this piece.
