Courageous All Men (C.A.M.) Workshop

CEBU CITY - Another of  Cebu's prominent Hip Hop Dance Crews, Courageous All Men will be holding their own dance workshop, on May 20, 2013 at the Mango Square Dance Studio. 2 sessions for only P150.  Registration is at 12 noon on the day and classes will start 1pm until 4pm. 

Initially their was called THEMSENT, simply because it sounded odd for a dance group and wasn't taken seriously it was just a name that was good at that moment. This was around 1st quarter of 2012. There were 3 members originally, The Mendoza brothers Mike and Keloy and friend John Rey. The brothers grew up in Luzon, and have since moved to Cebu. Wanting to share the dance style they're accustomed to, and with John Rey aboard they got the inspiration to share, teach and practice again if only to continue pursuing their love for dance.

THEMSENT's debut in the Cebu dancing scene was in the regional qualifying dance contest, Dance Off. Despite having the least number of members, their dance style -which apparently was relatively new to the local dance scene have made them stand out and impressed the judges enough that they made it as one of the finalist to represent Cebu in the national qualifying leg in Manila. In July 2012, They joined GMA Channel 7 Cebu's local dance competition  DanceFest, garnering the 2nd Runner-up title. Their biggest achievement to date is claiming the Championship title in ABS-CBN Cebu's local variety show Kapamilya Mas Winner Ka, Winner Dance Showdown.

After that, opportunities came in waves. From guest performance in shows with ABS-CBN Cebu, invitation to perform during events, etc. Giving the group more recognition and exposure. The group, which has long since grown from just 3 members has been more focused on training and improving themselves than joining competitions. Now more bonded as brothers, they've decided to choose a name that all the members can agree on. Thus, Courageous All Men - a name that depicts them as a group who've gone through a lot as friends, comrades and brothers in life and dance, and that they have and will stand for what they believe in.
