Filipino dancers Urban Crew back in Global Village


DUBAI – Urban Crew, the award-winning Filipino dancers from Asia’s Got Talent, are back in Global Village as the entertainment venue opens for its 26th Season.

Urban Crew will be performing a new production called Here Comes the Boom! at the Main Stage, which has been upgraded with an audio video makeover. It is part of Global Village’s daily entertainment feature.

The dance crew shot to fame by competing in Asia’s Got Talent in 2017 and winning second place in the grand finals with their high-flying, flip-intensive dance routine.

“Asia’s Got Talent opened a lot of doors for us. There are now a lot more offers for gigs in the Philippines and other countries,” Al Velez, a group member, told in a previous interview.

Velez said that the group practices death-defying routines every day.

“It’s more on acrobats, breakdancing and tumbling. We are not gymnasts but we know how to flip. We learned this from the streets,” Velez said.

Urban Crew joins more than 400 artists from around the world who are part of a unique entertainment lineup at Global Village.

Apart from Here Comes the Boom! by Urban Crew, spectacular new productions on the Main Stage include Puttin’ on the Glitz, After Dark, SLAM!, The Scatty Chapati, Clowns to the Rescue, and Absolute Bollywood.

Global Village has also confirmed that they will be hosting international award-winning shows and entertainers such as Burn The Floor, Swing Latino and AAINJA.

Harbour Force – a brand new enhanced stunt show experience is the Middle East’s first-ever water-based stunt show, which includes jet skis, fly-boards and a 27m high dive tower. The world record holding LED cars and drivers are also back this season for what is simply an awe-inspiring experience.

A slew of Street Show performers will be live across the Park including Pirate Peril, Living Lamp-Posts, The Tallest Old Man, Wheelie-clean, Speak-car, Robo-XXL, The Gift That Keeps on Running, Jolly Jousting Knights, Brilliant Bubble Bike, The Living Hedge, Clown Car Capers, Runaway Gingerbread Men, Too Many Pizzas, Retro Rocket, and Clowns on stilts on bikes.

A spectacular fireworks display will light the sky every Thursday and Friday evening at 9pm throughout the season. ICA/Expat Media
