Ciara "Gimme Dat" | Dancers | Lopez Tonight | 16 DEC 2010

Let me tell you, Ciara is a magical being. This is a list a adjectives for her: focused, energetic, spiritual, funny, beautiful, intellectual, etc....She is really a VIBRANT artist to be around. Any rumors you heard about her are totally falsified through this blog entry, I'm claiming it lol. I mean being around her while she was in work mode was fabulous, we even had a conversation about ATL and High School (She went to Henderson, and I went to SWD). I mean who does that? What artists shoots the shit with a lowly backup dancer lol, but nah she is genuinely a kindred spirit and I wish her the best. Check out the blog section of strikersallstars.com for video footage of me performing with her, and some group photos! #HOOAH #ROO #OHLEHDOIT #SPLACKSPLACK

FAMU Homecoming 2010 recap

In the highest of seven hills, Florida A&M University in Tallahassee Florida, holds an annual week of events that brings back alumni of the university and amplifies "Rattler Spirit". I was in attendance for this years festivities and I was flabbergasted to say the least. Free entry into events, complimentary tickets to concerts, and seeing those that I attended school with were all great things, but the greatest thing was being around my fraternity brothers of Omega Psi Phi fraternity Inc. Upsilon Psi chapter. FAMU is the #1 HBCU in the world and this homecoming I got the #1 experience...HOMECOMING! Happy homecoming ratters!

By Limitless Entity

Within the last two months, Cyrah Hawkins has been fortunate enough to actively participate in some memorable events such as the Nike World Basketball Festival that occurred on August 23rd, 2010 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, NY.  He performed as a dancer/stepper who worked alongside renowned choreographer Chuck Maldonado (the King of Step) and artistic director Marlene Clayman.  All-Star basketball players such as Lamar Odom and Rajan Rondo were in attendance for this event which was streamed live on facebook as well as ESPN2.
            On September 1st, 2010 he met Paula Abdul to present choreography for her the pilot of her TV dance show at Alley Kat Studios in Los Angeles, CA.  Paula definitely enjoyed the performance alongside choreographers for Michael Jackson.  Cyrah’s group member’s Otheus Manuel and Edwin Bennett of the Strikers All-Stars were also in attendance.  They had great conversations with Paula and learned a lot from her regarding dance and choreography.
            Cyrah was able to participate in another pilot docu-series entitled "Flashmob" by Napolean & Tabitha better known as "NappyTabs" for FOX network which features Howie Mandel, on September 12, 2010.  He was dressed up as a Chef, alongside five other Strikers, and caught mall patrons off guard when they began stepping.
            During the Nickelodean Fresh Beat Band Season finale on September 24, 2010, Cyrah was a principal dancer and stepper.  He was able to gain more expertise in step choreography by working with Chuck Maldonado.  He did this by learning new step routines which further perfected his craft. By booking this job, it allowed Cyrah to join The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). Cyrah was also able to work with some of today’s best dancers of which were also showcased in “Stomp the Yard” and “Step Up” movie series.  For Cyrah it’s very important to learn and progress as a dancer and choreographer and through his recent events he has been able to do just that! Be sure to look out for Cyrah featured in HOT new music video by a recording artist from HOTLANTA!

The America's Got Talent Exp.

After two of the most viewed episodes of NBC's AGT [Chicago Auditions and Week 4 of Top 48] sadly it came to an end with me and my crew The Strikers All-Stars. I had a good experince on set and met a lot of talented people. The sheer experince of being around the cameras, working with 5 star choreographers, and getting multiple interviews increased my hollywood metabolism by 12 points (100 point scale). Due to copyright laws I can't post my AGT videos, but you can find them on youtube by searching "Strikers AGT". In the midst of us hanging out on set, I was drinking a sprite and made a random lil sample for everyone, enjoy!

Universal Studios Hollywood

I am currently seeking this gig at Universal Studios Hollywood for Halloween Horror Nights. The role would be "funny black guy" for the stageplay "Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure". I did a parody of the Old Spice guy and my chances are pretty good. Hopefully it works out.

The Father of Black History!


Harold K. Thomas, the eighth Grand Basileus, was elected at the 1920 Nashville Grand Conclave. It was at this Conclave that Carter G. Woodson inspired the establishment of National Achievement Week to promote the study of Negro life and history. The 1921 Atlanta Grand Conclave brought to an end the first decade of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.
