Prestige is credited with being the pioneers of hip-hop dance in New Zealand.
Back in 2006 they made history as the first Kiwi crew to win a medal at the World Hip-Hop Championships (they came second) and for four years running, from 2005-2008, placed within the top 10 crews in the world.
In 2007 they placed 1st out of 55 nations at the European World Hip-Hop Championships in Serbia and earlier this year won the New Zealand Hip-Hop Dance Championships.
Prestige was originally just a bunch of mates who came together for a one-off competition to open for American singing star Missy Elliot. They won, and have been performing ever since, doing everything from corporate functions to charity gigs and festivals.
All eight guys work or study full-time, but hip-hop is their overriding passion, with a mission to empower and inspire young New Zealanders to use their gifts and abilities to achieve their dreams.
"We have been around since the beginning of street dance and hip-hop in New Zealand and have started a national movement," says dancer Joshua Martin.
"We entered NZGT because we want to put hip-hop on the map and show that it is an exciting, passionate, energetic, inspirational and valid performing art not just gangsters mucking around on a street corner!"
