An Update for The Mixtape

Dear MixTape Readers,

This is Frankie James, Founder of Adobo Street Connection and Executive Producer of The MixTape. Before I make an announcement of the teams competing for The MixTape, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for any confusion upon the dance competition. It has come to my attention that there has been an inconsistent stream of information towards our event event.

It appears there has been a mis-communication between what locations of teams are allowed to participate. We have been hearing, “It’s a Stockton competition,” “It’s a local competition,” and “It’s a Nor Cal competition.”

So I can make it clear and more specific, the dance competition was open to any teams within an 80 miles radius of Stockton, Ca. Adobo Street Connection will make sure this rule is consistent for this event and any discretions will be personally handled. Registration forms for the dance competition are found at this link and also on Rhythm Inc.’s website (

Feel free to download the forms, fill it out, and email it to or send it via snail mail (address can be found in the registration form). All the rules are clearly stated and will be strongly enforced. The due date has been announced consistently through ASC’s and Rhythm Inc.’s promotions for January 3rd, 2010. Late registration is as of that date is $20 per member.
