8 Flavahz is an all-female dance crew from Honolulu, Hawaii and Los Angeles, California. They are best known for being the runner-ups of the seventh season of America's Best Dance Crew. The crew consists of four members from Hawaii - Tiara Rapp, Tamara Rapp, Camren Bicondova and Summer Waikiki - and four members from Los Angeles - Kaelynn Gobert-Harris, Jaira Miller, Angel Gibbs, and Charlize Glass. Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle in the 2014 series called Gotham which takes place before Bruce Wayne became Batman.
Before 8 Flavahz
Before forming 8 Flavahz with its current lineup, the crew was known as Flavahs Crew and consisted of eight girls from the Hawaii dance studio 24VII. The original crew had auditioned for the sixth season of America's Best Dance Crew, but did not make the cut. Although they did not make it onto the show in season 6, they were encouraged to return to try out for the next season by ABDC judge D-trix.
In 2011, after failing to make it onto the sixth season of America's Best Dance Crew, the Hawaii girls - Tiara, Tamara, Camren, and Summer - attended a dance convention in Los Angeles, where they met their L.A. counterparts - Kaelynn, Jaira, Angel, and Charlize. The Hawaii girls then invited the four L.A. girls to join them and their crew to compete in World of Dance Hawaii. Under the name Flavahs and Friends, they competed in World of Dance Hawaii and placed in third. Three of the Hawaii girls - Tiara, Tamara, and Summer - were also a part of another group that was competing in the same competition, named 24VII Danceforce, in which they were crowned the winners. After placing third in World of Dance Hawaii, it was decided that the four Hawaii girls would form a new group with the four L.A. girls and they were officially dubbed, 8 Flavahz. With their newly formed group, the girls were ready to audition once again for the next season of America's Best Dance Crew placing second in the competition.
