Foreign Bodies @ Gardens By The Bay

Yesterday was finally the day. If you guys were wondering who were the group of dope dancers performing at  Gardens By The Bay (GBTB) last night, Foreign Bodies is their name! FBodz performed at SuperTree Grove as part of the ‘August Garden Series’

So, I met up with Hazwan & Hui Xian for dinner at Pizza Hut & Starbucks before heading over to GBTB to support the Seniors. We were supposed to meet up with the rest of 13th Gen first before heading to the main area but we were slightly late so… yea. It was really funny how we were all chill and all, looking for the seniors till they came walking out from their holding area because our reaction was all the same. Drastic change though. Suddenly every junior felt intimidated and went all quiet. Haha! Typical reaction luh honestly ><

Was super excited to watch the performance after seeing bits and pieces of their items during their practices in school.

Finally at around 7PM, the performance finally begun! I think the performance attracted alot of attention there as many people crowded around to watch and many cheered loudly (not just us okay) for them as well. The performance kicked off with a good start. First up we had Larry & Leon’s Hip Hop item.

Looking fierce eh? (click to enlarge pictures because they’re small)

larry hip hop

Hmmm I think the choreo was really good, performance too~ However, (i’m so sorry, dont kill me T_T) I felt like that in-the-air stunt was not necessary but that’s just my opinion. I felt that the item was already good enough and could do without it but that doesn’t mean the stunt wasn’t cool. IT AS COOL OKAY BECAUSE IT IS DIFFICULT TO DOOOOOOOOO.

The next performance really brought it up. Choreographed by Amalina & Zhi Qiang, we have…. /wait for it/.. REGGAE DANCEHALL ❤ *woots* DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE REGGAE DANCEHALL?! Totally loved it~ Everyone was burning the stage *_* Joining this is probably my first goal after becoming a senior next year.

After seeing Zowell’s , I think mine is just bad.

Hehe Xin Yi~~

Dancehall was followed by Ruzaini’s Swag Item. Fun Fact: ALL of the 12th Gen ICs ( Xin Yi, Di Di, Zuraida & Zhi Qiang) are in that item. Love Love Love this Item as well~ //BOOM BOOM SHAKE SHAKE DA BOOM!// This Item will be performed during Dance Synergy next week as well. Crew Mate Xin Yi had a small solo part there yo~~ (SWAG cropped top Girl). Another Genre I would love to try/take when I become a Senior in FBodz. Lots and lots of control needed ><

Next, SPECIAL ITEM! Combined Popping-Locking Item. I think it was really well done especially when they made use of the pairings and I really love the song Treasure. If you like funk music or funk styles, you should probably watch this one. Hehe~ Actually I don’t think I need to express how much I love this Item as well because I think I just loved all the items equally (but slightly more for the Dancehall, Swag & lyrical Items)

NEXT TIME IS ALSO SPECIAL OKAY. It was the Item I was looking forward to the most that night. Girl’s Styling (or is this girl’s hip hop?) …

1239041_10200310656910040_2131857171_nBAD, BAD, BAD BITCH!~ Was it the best performance that night? I think so man. I heard that the Dancers for this Item was hand picked by the Choreographer, Anna. Please prepare tissue in case you nose bleeds. I really would like to try a choreography like this but but but.. I don’t think I can do it as well as them… and pulling it off would be… So I really respect dancers who can really do sexy well… As well as Lyrical but that’s another story.

1184878_10200311041159646_157121830_nOUH! Okay this is another Girl’s Style Choreo done by Naz & Inah. Different Kind of Sexy. YAY NAZ & INAH! hehe~

Then it’s Khair (Dope senior, mad respect for him) & Daniel’s Hip Hop Item! I really like their style though. Mainly made up of Grand Seniors rather than 12Gen seniors BUT there are A FEW of them inside. Eh but DOPE LA BODOH!

-END OF SEGMENT 1-

During the Break they had a special short (freestyle) performance by Rory and Mikeh. Both were dope /as expected/ for both the timeslots. Okay so they actually performed twice because there were two slots so… yea. For the First ‘guest’ from the Audience, we had Justin AKA Jin (LION CITY LOCKER!) to learn abit of Popping from the both of them. One thing you should know, fbodz peeps are real entertainers and not just by dancers. Haha Jin played along in learning and being a ‘noob’ and Mikeh and Rory giving a rather exaggerated reaction but his true ability came out when we was asked to freestyle. It should be available on YouTube if I’m not wrong. Will post it up if I can find it 🙂  The 2nd guest (as in 2nd segment’s guest) was none other than… eh Sorry I forgot his name and if i’m not wrong his name is NOT JAKE as said in the video (will try to find it). The video explains it all uh. Actually you can try looking for the video on their YT channel (link below)

– SEGMENT 2 –

isaac

Isaac & Zuraidi’s LYRICAL! I don’t know why but for both the starting, the wrong song was played and Isaac being the joker he is started dancing to the song for the fun of it during the Second performance. Ah well, dancers 😉 I really think this Lyrical choreo was well done. YAY Isaac! ^^

Hmm next was KPOP. I think it’s really rare to see Foreign Bodies doing KPOP for a performance. Anyway they did After School’s Because Of You, which I think the Majority did super well because OMG the feel *_* & also Didi & Khair’s starting was <3, and also DMTN’s ER.

RAIZAN’S SWAG ITEM. Actually I’m not sure whether it’s Raizan’s but I think it is. HOLY SHIT I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS ITEM OKAY. Many of my batch mates mistook it for lyrical (yes, I can see why because I made the same mistake before) but it is actually Swag Item. The more chill more groovy swag compared to the one in Segment 1. I think its refreshing to see chill swag item because you don’t get to see it often, especially if its a damn good one.

Up next, Guy’s Lyrical.  JT’s Suit & Tie choreographed by Kai Jie. I think it was really nice to watch and the boys were really charming on stage~ But… idk why the right side looks a little empty. Choreographer is the super tall guy in the middle for the most of the choreography. (Do not refer to picture, haha)

Up next, Girl’s Styling again. Haha I think this one was supposed to be abit more bimbo? But I really enjoyed watching it as well. Wlao why so sexy sia… Jealous because I can’t dance until that standard. /cries/ the second song they did was the senior (alumni) girls item for club crawl 2013 but this item has seniors inside as well of course.

Okay, the next one is like a total nose bleed okay. STREET JAZZ YO! I swear this is fucking kinky okay and I already love the song (pick me up & thrown me down~) from some time back so… doesn’t help it gets stuck in my head. Honestly the choreographer (Ponytail, bra-let and tights with studded choker) was too fucking hot/sexy that I feel that it should be rated. HOW DO THE PARENTS OF THOSE LITTLE KIDS LET THEIR KIDS WATCH THAT?! Holy shit but that was damn good I cannot…. /cries/ I really love the Street Jazz Choreo…

Hmm Finale, haha what’s new? Just everyone having fun! 🙂

OH YEA HOR~ There’s no Bboy for this round’s performance…. 😦 Oh well~

I stayed for both the time slots because I couldn’t get enough of it. I think I’m having withdrawals… T_T

You can check out the the performance videos (Seg 1 & 2) on their (our?) page @ Fbodz.com or on their Youtube Channel

Honestly many people said that the video didn’t them justice but oh well.

Just a quick intro, Foreign Bodies, founded is 1994, is a street dance (hiphop) dance club of Nanyang Polytechnic. To know more about Foreign Bodies, CHECK OUT FBODZ.COM (again!)
