We formed this group because dancing is something that we all enjoy. We want to be able to create memories and friendships that will last us a lifetime.
illicit dance crew
illicit dance crew is a diverse crew that was established Oct 2017. We not only do Kpop dance covers but create original choreography and creatively put out unique covers. Our members vary in both experience and styles such as Urban, Hip Hop, Contemporary, and etc. In addition our love of Kpop was one of the two reasons for creating this crew. Some of our favorite Kpop groups are BTS, TWICE, 2NE1, Mamamoo and EXO. Our goal is to cover not only some of our favorite groups but perform for a variety of events, while spreading Korean culture with a Western influence.
Majestix Idol Project
Hello, we are Majestix Idol Project! We are a dance and cosplay group consisting of nine eager individuals who love anime and dancing. We formed in April of 2017 and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us! Our first performance was at Ai-kon’s dance showcase in 2017. Since then we have performed at C4 2017 in the Idol Showcase, recored a PV and released a Christmas special. This summer we have many plans for recording PV’s and we can’t wait to get started on them.
We are originally a Love Live dance group, but we have started to branch out. We now perform songs in the genres of c-pop and k-pop alongside j-pop.
Majestix is thankful for the performance opportunities we have been given. We love to share our passion of dancing with others and encourage others to try it for themselves.
We’re a recreational dance group that focuses mostly on Asian pop covers (so Kpop, Jpop, Cpop and Mandopop) but we also practice freestyle/hiphop fundamentals or whatever kind of dance interests us. We’re interested in encouraging our members to develop their own style while having fun.
