Super-hot dance crew Kaba Modern will be rocking ElecTRONica at DCA every weekend through March 20th.
Disney Parks Blog says, “This urban collegiate dance group perfected their unique groove within the hallowed halls of University of California, Irvine. First formed in 1992, the award-winning team continues to grow and evolve, thanks to its international fan base, fantastic versatility, and ultimate passion for dance.”
“Kaba Modern’s award-winning performances have turned heads at prestigious competitions such as Bust-A-Groove, Bodyrock, Fusion and Vibe. And their championship rise to the finalist level in both the Hip Hop International Dance competition and MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” captured even more fans.”
Over at Flynn’s Arcade pick up all-new Flynn’s Arcade tokens! Here’s a sneak peek at the special edition tokens.
Hmmmm.. These look familiar. Could these be the same tokens they were giving to folks who check in using Gowalla? I thought this was a collectors edition. Perhaps they had plenty left over.
From the Disney Parks Blog:
Guests have had so much fun at ElecTRONica, the grid will be open all summer long at Disney California Adventure park!
ElectTRONica is a nighttime celebration that features music, live performances and interactive experiences, and it has become the place to dance the night away. Inspired by the computer-world environment of “TRON: Legacy,” ElecTRONica comes to life each evening in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot. The Disney film “TRON: Legacy” debuted in theaters in December, 2010.
Special featured acts continue to keep the experience fresh. Here are some current highlights of the party:
- DJs keep the energy going with electronic party music while dancers costumed as “Sirens” and “Programs” from the movie rock out at locations throughout the party.
- Dance Crews, including “We Are Heroes,” the first female dance crew to win MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” bring their signature moves to the Backlot Stage on selected nights.
- Also appearing on the Backlot Stage is LASERMAN, demonstrating his unique talents and skill in a stunning performance that combines music, lights, and lasers.
- An amazing, full-scale model of a Light Cycle from the Disney film “TRON: Legacy.”
- A re-creation of Flynn’s Video Arcade, which was a key location in the “TRON: Legacy” adventure. Gamers shoot for the highest scores as they enjoy classic 1980s arcade games. For ElecTRONica, you can find Flynn’s at the back of the party, near End of Line club.
- Fun food items and glowing beverages.
Be a part of the action and enjoy a fun-filled night of games, music and dance as ElecTRONica electrifies the summer at Disney California Adventure park. Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for updates on new performers.
