'Tight Eyez' and Street Kingdom Bring Krumping to 'America's Best Dance Crew' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 8th 2011 1:06AM
Ceasare 'Tight Eyez' Willis & Street Kingdom, 'Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew' season premiereWhen 'America's Best Dance Crew' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV) decided it was time to bring krumping to the stage in a big way, they did it the right way. Ceasare 'Tight Eyez' Willis is one of the co-developers of the dance movement. Along with his crew, Street Kingdom, 'Tight Eyez' represented for himself and his movement on the show.

That means an opportunity to see krumping at its purest and rawest, and it was every bit of that as the crew pounded the stage with energy, anger and movements that are both intimidating and intoxicating to watch.

D-Trix, the newest member of the judging panel and a former contestant, knows exactly what a big moment this was. "For years we tried to have krump on reality TV," he said. "But only at 'America's Best Dance Crew' can we get Tight Eyez and the Street Kingdom here on this stage tonight."

Krump is Tight Eyez way of honoring his Savior. So step off haters.

Krumping IS an art form. With all due respect to those who disagree. Just like opera or ballet. Either you love it or you hate it. When break dancing hit the sceen it was called "a bunch of kids rolling around on the floor" remember that? Now those who put it down can't. Wait to see a "windmill" or flares as it is nationally called . Krumping is a more powerful inner expression. It is spiritual. It is heart and yes it is dance. Personally I think those that judge it negativly haven't had a deep soul penetrating spiritual moment because if they had then they wouldn't judge it so harshly. But its ok. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. And as said earlier people attack what they don't understand. Personally I have never krumped because. I don't think I could give it justice. But when I watch it brings tears to my eyes because I understand it. Being able to express those emotions thru dance is a gift. One that we will see for a long time.

Not seeing the connection with Christianity and crumping? Something tells me Jesus, The Blessed Mother and St. Joseph wouldn't see crumping as a devotion to God and a fellowship for Christ. I think Jesus would've attempted to cast out whatever demons appearing to be torturing these confused people.

We all have our place in Christ if you believe in him Krumping is their way of showing the love for Christ and man it gets the kids out of gangs if you don't understand it watch rize. But Christians ate the worst for cutting down other Christians if they don't understand another's walk just because you don't see Christ in Krump does not mean He is not there. I have been learning Krump and it is not easy and I know tight eyez is doing it for Jesus just watch.
