Sazrah Interviews Elementz Ent. A Hip Hop Dance Act from Cambridge who are Taking the World by Storm
I am delighted to have the chance to blog about an act from my area - Cambridgeshire! They go by the name of Elementz Ent and their success has been huge and is still expanding across the globe. With clients as big as the Black Eyed Peas, and performances abroad as well as in famous UK venues (Olympia, The Royal Opera House, Hammersmith Apollo and Indigo2 to name a few), there is no doubt that these guys have the talent that keeps us all entertained to the fullest.
They have competed in The International World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas, USA & The IDO World Hip Hop Championships in Poland but they still feel it is important to stick to their roots and perform locally so have applied to perform in Cambridge's biggest urban and wordl talent show Bling Ya Ting (which I am proud to be on the judging panel of)!

I decided to have a quick catch up with this diverse dance crew and see what they are all about. I was also curious about with their views on Bling Ya Ting as they have performed on this talent competition every single year since it started.
Since showcasing yourself into the public eye, you have received big name clients such as The Black Eyed Peas, Robert Sales and Coca Cola! Tell us more. How did this all come about?
We have just kept training and putting ourselves out their and the opportunities have come to us. As the years have gone by we have become more professional to use our talent as a career and work for these types of clients. But our main aim is to keep training and develop ourselves as artists.
You have taken part in Bling Ya Ting since it started and are applying again this year. What elements of the show motivate you to take part every time?
For us, it's a platform to showcase our work within the region we are representing. We also want to show support to the other acts who may just be starting out or also professionals.
How much have you grown as an act since your first Bling Ya Ting audition up until now? Has the show helped you develop as an act in anyway?
We have grown 100% and continue to grow. The show helps you develop as it is a regular platform.
You have travelled round the world as an act. But what does representing Cambridge mean to you?
We have grown to be a collective from all round the UK but always based in Cambridge, we want to rep hard! The scene here needs growth!
What advice would you give to other Bling Ya Ting artists who are auditioning this year?
Come hard, train hard and do you!
Any projects coming up?
We will be producing our first Hip Hop Theatre production next year based on the 4 Elements of Life and performing it in Cambridge, check out our website www.elementzent.com to keep up to date with us.
Thank You Guys!!
