We Are Heroes, the winners of the fourth season of America’s Best Dance Crew, were poppin’ at The Rock Center for Dance on July 18.

The dynamic all-girl crew, with members hailing from all sides of the hip-hop globe, gave a diverse master class and emphasized the power of basics. (Check out their promo material here.)

Hiroka “Hero” Mcrae recruited four other girls and started the Heroes crew. Together, the girls set out to prove that fierce female energy and creativity are in demand. America agreed, crowning them America’s Best Dance Crew in 2009.

Their class was equally impressive. The personalities of the girls were evident and teamwork was oozing out of their teaching style.

Despite the credentials and their televised success, the two hour master class was surprisingly ill-attended.

Yes, it was  Sunday, and yep, it was hot. But come on. Props go out to the girls for bringing it as much as ever, but there is too much of a hip-hop community in Vegas for only eight people to show up.

This is on you, Las Vegas. We can do better than that.
