9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

I have seen better High school dance concerts.
A mumbling, rambling, nervous narrative to start then repetition, repetition, repetition.
Failed on all levels, technical, talent, entertainment value.

There is no doubt that dancers are talented and had lots of energy. The concept is nice, a blend of hip-hop and modern. However, I felt the vast emptiness of the stage overpowered them and their performance. Also, the woman speaking either...continued

Although a lot of the music was a bit too "hip hop" electronic to listen to for very long, there was quite a lot of creativity to it. The dancers displayed an amazing degree of ability and endurance. I was very impressed.

Description

An explosive fusion of hip hop and dance theatre, this all-female ensemble will blow you away with a performance that is “intensely emotional and casually streetwise” (Jennifer Dunning, New York Times).

Based in Brooklyn and comprised of young women from the United States, Colombia and Japan, this eight-member ensemble may not share the same spoken language, but they have all acquired the common universal languages of dance and urban hip-hop on the streets of the cities where they grew up.

Decadance, led by artistic director Jennifer Weber, strives to take the female hip-hop artist out of the background of music videos and into the forefront of theatrical performance. Decadance vs. The Firebird is a high-energy urban ballet that mashes up Stravinsky’s Firebird with original hip-hop beats, fusing break dancing with ballet and remixing the classic tale from the ballet with a contemporary vision.
