Over The Influence Interview

This video from Grounded TV features an interview with Over the Influence (OTI), who performed yesterday in Vancouver as part of the Dance Allsorts series presented by New Works. Formed in 2002, this Vancouver-based group currently consists of Jojo Zolina (aka Jojo Dancer), Stewart Iguidez (aka Stuey Teller) and Yoshi Hisanaga (aka B-boy Dino). On their website they describe their eclectic style as, “experimental fusions of dance styles such as hip hop, break dancing, funk, krumping, and house, ” but also note that, “individual members excel in other dance styles such as lyrical jazz, dance hall, salsa, contemporary, voguing, and waacking.” In addition to their work in film and television, they have worked with renown artists such as Nelly Furtado, K-Os, Swollen Members, Michael Bublé, Cory Lee, The Roots, Mos Def, the Beastie Boys, Dogg Pound and Grandmaster Flash. Don’t miss their workshop on September 25th at the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre.
