SKOOL DISTRICT


Last weekend, I got the opportunity to go see World of Dance at San Mateo. There were two teams that stood out to me: V.I.P. (repping San Jose; directed by Krisuan Rosales) who placed 2nd, and SKOOL District (directed by Jay Chris Moore) who placed 3rd –Poreotics took first. Both these teams, however, provided the HYPE and SWAG that a lot of the audience was craving for that day.

Although SKOOL District was announced as an LA area team, Jay Chris’s project actually SPANS 4 AREAS (including and outside of LA) across the United States as “Academees.” As the next level towards his first conception of THE ACADEMEE, which was a project to attempt to make it onto America’s Best Dance Crew, Season 4; the idea further evolved as different “academees” were created.

  • ACADEMY OF VILLAINS (SAN MATEO)
  • ACADEMY OF HYPE (HAWAII)
  • ACADEMY OF SWAG(LOS ANGELES)
  • ACADEMY OF PHR3SH ( PHILADELPHIA )

Yes, my dudes. PHILLY is on the map thanks to collaborative contributions from PHR3SH SELECT. So next time you see SKOOL DISTRICT, east coast…show them some love, because they’re reppin our coast (as well as  west coast, and the “pacific”). –Now that’s real east meets west love.

KNOW YOUR RIVALS

(You can also tell which academee is which from the song selections).
