A laundry list of dance celebrities such as Roshon Fegan, Megan Batoon, and Chachi Gonzales, along with past America’s Best Dance Crew winner’s and contestants such as, Mos Wanted Crew, Super Crew, 8 Flavahs, Stepboys, Electrolytes and many more graced the stage to the delight of all the spectators.
