Everyone knows the impact that Pro-AM has had on the local street dance scene. As an international performing arts conference, the Pro-AM Tour has hit venues in multiple countries, leaving a legacy of inspiration and history-making in its wake. Zulu Gremlin and the Waterhole Kids bring the Las Vegas edition of this tour for the 14th Anniversary from February 12-13, 2010. You wan't want to miss this unprecedented gathering, especially if you haven't had the chance to go to a previous Pro-AM. (Photos above are from the facebook site for Pro-AM 2010 Las Vegas.)
The competition categories are going to be intense this year. There's a 3 on 3 breakin' battle, a group choreography competition, a 2 on 2 poppin' contest, a DJ battle plus master classes, panels, a fashion show, performances, and workshops. Media Sirkas will be performing along with a turntablism demo from DJ Rectangle. The lineup sounds like a well-organized event that will give the casual attendee a thorough experience in hip hop culture and the arts.

Many of us have fond memories when Pro-AM came to LA whether it was our first battle or one that inspired us as a viewer. Pro-AM remains one of the consistently enjoyable experiences for hip hop aficionados largely due to Zulu Gremlin's leadership, foresight, and the work of his production team. It has grown to be part of current hip hop culture due to its global reach. And it's a forum for well-respected, established teachers to pass on knowledge of their art form to a younger generation. As the mainstream media continues to circle around the street dance world, events like Pro-AM will keep the community grounded and well-informed from the originators of our dance, music, and visual arts.
