The 9th annual Hip Hop International competition is bringing more than 1,500 dancers from more than 30 countries to Red Rock Casino this week, and two local Las Vegas Prodigy crews made it to Tuesday's U.S.A. Finals. With help from dance-centric Cirque du Soleil shows like The Beatles Love and local celebrities such as 10-year-old America's Got Talent contestant Bailey 'Bailrok' Munoz, Hip Hop dance is gaining popularity with Sin City locals. The junior and varsity Prodigy dance crews from Vegas' Studio One didn't advance to the World Championships, but Bailrok and his fellow Vegas dancers gave a memorable performance.
