The hot new face of New Zealand hip hop feature this Sunday 24 November in the semi finals of the TV ONE hit show New Zealand’s Got Talent.

IDentity Dance Crew have had a whirlwind year taking out the National Hip Hop Championships and representing New Zealand at the world Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas where they brought home the silver medal in their first ever appearance on the world stage. To achieve this, Identity competed against 67 teams from 40 countries and missed out on first place by a mere1 /100th of a point.

They have also just featured in the Tempo Festival “Out Of The Box” Hip Hop Showcase and have been travelling to Dance studios across the country as guest choreographers to help develop up and coming dancers.

IDentity has also toured the country with the Primal Youth UNDEFEATED teen suicide prevention campaign. The boys performed in over 17 high schools, across 5 cities reaching over 8,000 young people with an inspirational hip hop showcase and positive message of hope encouraging youth to reach out for help.

“It’s been a full on year! We are stoked to be part of NZGT competition and hope to make the final. We are amping to go back and take out the gold next year at the World Hip Hop Championships. We want to continue to push the boundaries of hip hop dance and do NZ proud! We also want to continue giving back to the community and seeing the next generation in NZ be inspired to not hold back but to work hard at going after their dreams” says crew leader Josh Cesan.
