Kollaboration NY: Keepin’ it FRESH with exciting new announcements!!


Kollaboration NY is almost 2 weeks away and we can’t be more excited about the show! Not only is there going to be an off-the-hook lineup of competitors, but there will be FREE Pinkberry served before the show and FREE drinks at the afterparty sponsored by Jinro Hite! Furthermore, allkpop is coming to you live at the show! Be sure to check out their site as they hold it down with all the latest details and features! Does it get any better than that?? Well it does if you’re a fan of the CW’s Gossip Girl! Yin Chang or “Nelly Yuki” has signed on a guest judge, along with Brigette Noh, the CFO and Co-Founder of Chaos Theory Music.

ANDDD if you haven’t heard already, Eliot Chang (who by the way, made Comedy Central’s HOTLIST 2009) will be headlining the show! This guy is not only hilarious but a die-hard New Yorker, so show some love to your homegrown talent! Check out some of Eliot’s stand up below (disclaimer: some inappropriate language used):

We’ve also added two new competitors to our line-up!

  • Cobu, a Japanese Taiko and tap dance company, which was founded by Yako Miyamoto, a current member of the off broadway-hit STOMP.
  • Project D, a New Jersey based hip hop dance company and winner of the 2008 Pride Day Competition.Add Video
