VIDEO SPOTLIGHT: Alhambra hip hop crew FamBiz

Family Bizness, a hip hop crew based in Alhambra, started in 2004 as a small group of teenage friends in Glendale with a passion for dance. Soon they were performing at local parties and church events. In the past seven years the group has relocated to Alhambra and grown to 24 members. Now young adults, they have performed at dozens of dance competitions as well as an auto show, a dragon boat festival, a rave and music videos with upcoming artists.

 

The Alhambra Source spoke with choreographer Stephanie Hagberg about Family Bizness (which also calls itself FamBiz) and some of the videos they had produced to showcase their work. One is a musical dance documentary showing the group's history. Shot in downtown LA, it is titled "500 Days of FamBiz," a spoof on the movie "500 Days of Summer." The idea evolved one day when they were doing a photo shoot and involves dancing in many unexpected spots in the city.

 Another video is from their performance at the Urban Street Jam competition in Anaheim, where they tied for fifth place. Most of the members teach at Jayvee, a dance studio located on Main Street, so you can actually learn some moves. If you want to catch FamBiz in action, they will be at JayVee's upcoming dance recital "ERA," taking place at Glendale High Auditorium on May 15 at 2pm. They'll also be in Las Vegas this summer for the Hip Hop International, which draws dancers from dozens of countries for an elimation-style competition.
