USA Hip Hop Dance Championships | Red Rock Resort | July 31, 2012

It’s easy to get distracted photographing the USA Hip Hop Dance Championships. I kept getting mesmerized by the acrobatic moves, especially those by The Prodigy, Las Vegas’ own junior division dance crew.

In this photo of the crew, Gaevin Bernales, 13, does a flip. I can’t help thinking this should be an Olympic sport in 2016.
