SUMMER 2015:

We were invited to do Swathe on Urban Moves Streetdance Festival at Dansenshus, friday 19th and saturday 20th.

Swathe - “Tendency in nature to form wholes that are greater than the sum of the parts” www.cre-8.no Cre8 dance crew was established in 2005, the 18 members are versatile dancers with a strong base in hip-hop/urban dance. After many years with collaborations they have also individually explored different areas within performing arts, stage work, choreography, TV productions, dance/musical-theatre production etc. within Norway and internationally. The crew wishes to create a different expression through movement by exploring the fusion of hip-hop/ urban dances and other dance genre. Cre8 believes in “ create your path” and the members are encouraged to explore, search and develop their own originality. The piece “ Swathe” is inspired by a holistic concept, which believes that the wholes are greater than the simple sum of their parts. We act and react in relation to each other, consciously or unconsciously our choices are always affected by our relations and connection to wholeness. Swathe is choreographed by Jens Trinidad and Christine Nypan, the dancers from cre8 are co-creators. - also a collaboration with the students at OSLO NATIONAL ACADEMY OF THE ARTS, 2014. Dancers in the video: Daniel Sarr, Quyen Ngyuen, Dag Rune Sjøli, Jens Trinidad, Chriz Nypan, Marikken Heitkøtter, Aida Frusan, Michelle Barbero, Mia Valentina Zapata.

Charity Project Philippines <3

Aida is in these days in Philippines, doing a charity project for the children under age 14, living and growing up in a hopeless environment. Through a international team of dancers, social workers, and filmmakers, they bring the Hip Hop Culture back to where it started; in areas plagued by poverty and injustice where people have no opportunity to build a balanced life with their basic needs, away from violence. Watch the video, love, share and care by supporting this project at www.hiphop4hope.com

We in Cre8 would like to thank everyone who used their time to vote & support us in the TV program 'Mitt DanseCrew'  We appreciate all the positive feedback our group has received for the work we put into it. THANK YOU! 

Last Friday was our time to leave. It's been a colorful and challenging adventure & we are proud of ourselves for the results of the work we put into it, not to mention proud of our celebrity-member Eskil Pedersen who went all in, especially in the last program. Believe it or not, he started as a complete rookie, someone who even had problems hearing the rhythm in the music, to actually doing two hiphop shows LIVE on TV..  That's a major progression there.

We are now all back in business, training hard, teaching classes and working on individual projects! 

Here below are some pictures of the last shows we did for MDC! 

Once again, THANK YOU for your votes & support. We would like to wish all the remaining contestants good luck ! 

LOVE - CRE8

ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT !

1st of all, we in Cre8 would like to wish you all a Happy New Year !  We hope you have enjoyed your holidays as much as we have :)   May 2015 be a year of countless blessings and accomplishments for us all! 

We are now getting closer to the Premiere of 'Mitt Danse Crew' which is already in 2 days (yiikes!) We are so excited & hope you are too ! 

 Remember to tune in on Friday, Jan.9th at 8pm on TV2 and follow us in this fun competition.   

We have been practising HARD with Eskil for one month now in different dance studios around Oslo but yesterday we finally got to have our first stage rehearsal and do the show fullout with lights, costumes, and cameras as if it was a live sending. We are happy with how our first runthrough went, and are ready for the LIVE show on Friday! 

The preparation day was long at the TV2 studios. Eskil (our celebrity crew member) went from feeling nervous to excited, adrenaline-rushed to calm to confident to happy to nervous again many times throughout the day :) which is so understandable.  (!!Remember, the guy is a former politician!! & has no experience whatsoever with performance, dance or being on a stage in a setting like that..) This is as far out of his comfortzone as he can get, which makes this SO much fun, a bit challenging but we can assure you that you will be surprised when you see him on Friday! 

Despite his nervousness, Eskil nailed the stage rehearsal and enjoyed it alot which made us so happy :))  

Once again, we're looking forward to give you a kickass entertaining show on Friday night !!  But remember, we will need your votes dear followers ! We're counting on you!! & we are so grateful for your support and feedback!

Here's a sneakpeak of what went down in the TV2 studio yesterday and some more practise pics! 

Mitt Danse Crew ! Team CREskil ! A long day ahead of us..
