FLAVAHZ Crew is an eight-member, all girl dance crew. Under the direction of Marcelo Pacleb of 24vii Danceforce in Hawaii, these incredibly talented girls were selected to work with lead choreographers, Kelsey Park and Josh Ofoia. FLAVAHZ Crew members include Angel Gibbs (12, LA); Camren Bicondova (12, HI/LA); Charlize Glass (10, LA); Jaira Miller (14, LA); Kaelynn Gobert-Harris (16, LA); Summer Waikiki (12, HI); and twins, Tiara and Tamara Rapp (17, HI). This dynamic group of dancers is a mixture of style, passion, versatility, fun, and love. Purpose driven, these girls are a representation of diversity in a global dance community. Their signature colors show individuality that is brought together to achieve unity.

Established in 2011, Marcelo's vision was to put together young talent from his home studio of 24vii to audition for ABDC Season 6. The original members of the group all came from Hawaii. Although they did not make it onto the show, FLAVAHS continued to perform in showcases and competitions. Later in the year, a group of girls from the collectiveUth family from LA and North Carolina were invited to perform with FLAVAHS & Frenz in WOD (World of Dance), where they placed 3rd behind 24vii's own adult piece and Hypersquad. It was during that time that the ingredients of FLAVAHS was being played with. There was potential for a new dynamic recipe and blend current members of the crew. While the direction is in Hawaii, it has been up to the members in LA to learn and rehearse choreography from video. It is that extreme dedication and drive that makes this concoction so special. The name FLAVAHS (with an S) became FLAVAHZ (with a Z) Crew just a couple of nights prior to the ABDC Season 7 audition. The visual esthetic of the sharp, straight lines made more sense and seemed natural.

FLAVAHZ Crew's success is reliant upon all the support they have. Dance family and friends in Hawaii from 24vii Danceforce, collectiveUth, and most importantly family members. Member families include a dad who is serving our country as a military serviceman, single parent homes, a mom who battled against cancer, the hardwork and effort put into allowing opportunities to dance. Dance is what they love to do, but their performance is what will leave you inspired. Don't be fooled by the sweetness of FLAVAHZ... this crew packs a fruity punch that is hard-hitting and fierce!
