Shouji Kimura

Street dancer and choreographer Shouji Kimura comes to the Apollo by way of Japan.  As part of his solo Amateur Night act, Shouji plans to break-out his “Robot Dance” while juggling a crystal ball.  What’s even more interesting about Shounji’s performance at the Apollo is that he is also a member of Third Element II, which is a group that has placed high in the Amateur Night ranks.  What happens if Shouji ends up competing against his own dance group?
