Students from Manurewa High school probably didn’t expect their tribute to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to do this well when they entered a national dance competition back in April, but it really, really did.
Rewa All Stars took home the Most Outstanding Performance at the Hip Hop International New Zealand Megaschools Street Dance Competition.
The video of the routine has since received more than 200,000 views.
“I think this is one way for our school to portray how good south Auckland is, especially Manurewa. Manurewa hard, ‘Rewa proud,” Iavana says.
“We just wanted to showcase something that was different and the talent in Manurewa as well. In the media we’re not looked highly and we just wanted to show anyone we can do it, we can make it,” Nese says.
