Award-winning hip hop dance group SickStep will headline .pure furisuta, the break (bboy) dancing hip hop exhibition at Pacific Media Expo (PMX), Nov. 10-11.

"Furi-suta is short for freestyle in Japanese, and means to be free on the dance floor," said Christine Sunga, event coordinator. "The exhibition is titled 'pure furisuta' because it means to purely be able to express yourself individually and as a whole within a group. This is the first time an American convention has reached out to fans of the Asian hip hop lifestyle. We asked SickStep to appear because they're one of the best and they remember where hip hop dance comes from even as they focus on where it's going."

Famed for their intense and extraordinary bboy dancing, SickStep members have performed in virtually every form of media, including commercials for the Intel Corp. and Stargate: Atlantis, music videos by the Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Lopez, television's So You Think You Can Dance, MAD TV, Gamehead and The Drop, as well as films Austin Powers in Goldmember and Memoirs of a Geisha.

.pure furisuta is complimentary after PMX registration and features performances by SickStep and other local dance groups on Nov. 10 directly after LiN CLOVER. Fans will be given the opportunity to learn directly from professionals Nov. 11, which will offer multiple panels on various dance techniques.
