Fiveology is a highly awarded spoken word poetry collective comprised of five very talented, passionate, and internationally recognized artists. A dynamic and entertaining performance poetry collective, Fiveology is; Rudy Francisco (National Slam Champion, TVOne’s Verses & Flow), Javon Johnson (2 time National Slam Champion, TVOne’s Verses & Flow, HBO Def Poetry Jam, BET’s Lyric Café), Prentice Powell (National Slam Finalist, TVOne’s Verses & Flow), Andrew Tyree (Nuyorican Grand Slam Champion, TVOne’s Verses & Flow, Accomplished Actor), and Shawn William (National Slam Finalist, Showtime at the Apollo). Formed in the fall of 2012, Fiveology is currently on a national tour opening up for Jill Scott, the group recently performed at McDonald’s 365Black Award Show at the Essence Music Festival and will appear on the upcoming 3rd season of TVOne’s Verses & Flow.
The Underground is a street dance company featuring a variety of styles from around the United States, including krump, Chicago footwork, popping and flexing. Founded by Miss Prissy from Rize and Lil "C" from Rizeand "So You Think You Can Dance", The Underground features choreography by Miss Prissy, Lil "C" and improvisational freestyles from the entire cast. In September 2012, the group premiered its first live show to a packed audience of over 1,200 at the University of Southern California, and followed that performance with a two-night run at Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in November 2012. They are also a movement, and the dancers hope to share their art and passion for street dance with as many communities as possible.
