As the members of the Jabbawockeez head toward the second anniversary of their second Las Vegas production, PRiSM, they’ve reached a professional milestone. They’ve arrived, survived and established themselves enough to now look forward to the troupe’s legacy being passed on to a new generation. Before they had even launched their groundbreaking show at the Luxor on May 31, 2013, the Jabbawockeez were introduced at World of Dance L.A. 2013 as individuals who significantly elevated dance culture. With PRiSM, they’ve both widened their demographic with a more accessible show and demonstrated to aspiring B-boys that, more than ever before, dedication to street dancing can pay off.
PRiSM originated with the Jabbawockeez’ move from the Monte Carlo to Luxor, into a theater designed for them. “It was like coming into a brand new home,” says co-founding member Kevin “KB” Brewer during an interview at the troupe’s headquarters. “We wanted to start fresh, and that’s the reason why we wanted to go into another show. And the premise behind the show is … we like Star Wars and The Matrix, those types of movies that have a meaning that is applicable to life. Jedis, light and dark. So we really talk about those kinds of things. We really wanted to encourage being about the light, you know? Positivity.”
The Jabbawockeez performed during the Phoenix Suns halftime show yesterday on February 10th. Photos have been added to the gallery. They also did a quick interview with ABC15 Arizona, which you can check out below.

The Jabbawockeez are featured in Nissan’s new campaign ‘#WithDad’. The video is just too cute to not watch it.
