Don’t the “ber” months make you want to get a move on? To inspire us into a real groove, B/BLOG got dancers Bea Vega, Paolo Zulueta, Kai Cruzado, and Bench Manalo to break out a few moves. With 2014 marking the 30th anniversary of Run-DMC’s debut album, we pressed play and got this street cred-packing crew to rock their bodies in Adidas Superstars. As the year nears its end, this dance battle reminds us we shouldn’t lose a beat.
