User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • A local education initiative has received a major commitment of financial support over the coming four years. Milwaukee Succeeds announced partnerships with five charitable foundations, each pledging $1 million dollars, to support its efforts to improve education outcomes for children from "cradle to career," said Executive Director Danae Davis. "This is an unprecedented commitment in the world of education in this community," Davis said. "It validates what more than 400 volunteer leaders, coordinators, mentors and tutors are working toward – changing our children’s future and putting them first."

  • Words by Edyn Herbert, Radio Milwaukee college intern   I’ve never been blindsided by an encounter before. I was going on my first community story with Dori Zori -- to the Harley-Davidson Museum to check out a new exhibit. We arrived and were greeted by Willie G.   Excuse me, THE Willie G.   Now, I didn’t grow up in a family that was into motorcycles, but I am from Milwaukee, and being from Milwaukee, even if you don’t grow up with a direct association to motorcycles, you still hear the distinct engine sound all the time in the summer. And every five years, your city is overtaken by Harley-Davidson enthusiasts from all over the country/world. So I am familiar. Now let me reiterate. I was greeted by Willie G and proceeded to walk through the new Willie G exhibit with Willie G. Willie G Davidson, the guy that pretty much single handedly created the cool factor that is Harley-Davidson motorcycles. As Dori and I walked through the exhibit I was overwhelmed. I didn’t know one person could do so many different things. From aesthetic sketches to practical designs, motorcycles to race cars, pencil drawings of t-shirts to water colors of flowers, Willie G does it all. He would stop at different designs of his and walk us through the history, what he was thinking back then. Conveniently (and well designed by the museum), the real life results were displayed next to the designs. Finally, we made it to the end of the tour. It lasted about an hour, with frequent stops while he reminisced.   We began our farewells, snapped a quick picture and then finally I looked up. About 30 people formed a circle around us, waiting for the chance to shake Willie G’s hand. But instead of pretending like he needed to stay and talk with his fans, he simply said, “I have to go up and work in my studio.” Willie G comes to the Harley-Davidson Museum every day. It's where his studio is. He just paints, or sketches, or something. He’s always working. And if you’re wondering what Willie G’s childhood smelled like, it was quite fittingly ... gasoline.   play pause stop mute unmute previous next WillieG.mp3

  • At a recent press conference, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and other city officials broke ground on a new small-scale public greenspace on the site of a former vacant lot. The site at N. 28th St. and McKinley Blvd. will be developed, using mostly private funds, into a sustainable park in the coming months.   It is the most recent in a string of vacant lots being converted into public spaces around Milwaukee.
