Shon Pace Memorial Fund
Dedicated to Shon Pace, RK Davis premieres a piece in his memory at the 2015 Syabrite Love is Love Choreographer’s Showcase. From RK Davis’s words: “This performance means SO much to me because it was at the height of our friendship when we lived on the same block, chilled everyday (or at least bugged out on the HOUSE phone for hours), pushed each other to go hard in our careers, and helped each other in every way possible. I remember we were sitting in my car the day “Ride” came out and both was so hype about how that bass hit (and we knew Ciara was gonna be on top again lol good luck for that one). We made a deal that we would both do our own mash up version of the song with another one of our favorite songs and perform it. I had the pleasure of helping with the choreography and dancing beside my best friend as he pursued his dream. It’s been days man and I still can’t believe it. Today I decided… I’m performing on Monday at sybarite and the same mix I let you hear that day in my car, the same deal we made on April 23, 2010… I’m dedicating this piece to you my brother.”

The 2015 Sybarite Love is Love Choreographer’s Showcase
We had the pleasure of covering the event hosted by Sybarite Productions and it was a night to remember. Couldn’t make it? We’ve got you covered. All showcasing performances from the night are live on our site here!
What better way to mark the end of 2015 and jump start New Years 2016 celebrations by watching some amazing, jaw dropping performances from artists putting it down on the stage. Not to mention, the vibe of the audience as well as the cyphers that pre-gamed and immediately followed the showcase performances. The community truly came together to support one another that night, with dancers representing Clear Talent Group and Bloc agencies all under one roof together at the Highland Ballroom in New York City.
New York City brought some serious energy that night. Music was provided by DJ Dax Carson. The host of the night, Voodoo Ray brought some serious entertainment to the event. Sybarite host founder, Dinna Alexanyan, brought her family to the show to enjoy the performances and gave a huge thank you to all those who help put together the show.
Sybarite has made themselves known as an entertaining dance showcase that features amazing talent in the east coast from both choreographers & dancers in the industry, hosting events for multiple years in the past. This year, the event was held on December 28, 2015 featuring artists ranging from established industry leaders and up and coming community members.
