Fatally Unique is a traveling Hip-Hop dance team originating from Rockford, Illinois. Words that describe Fatally Unique have always been determined, ambitious, noticed, courageous, innovative and inspiring. Their passion is much more than “Dance.” It is to have a positive influence on people’s everyday lives. Fatally Unique was founded by PrinceAlonzo, D'Andre Smith, & Quentin Tolefree in June 2006. Since then PrinceAlonzo has served as a C.E.O,Choreographer, & Dancer on the team. Fatally Unique's primary goal is to take teens off the streets and show them a genre of artistic urban avenues. This commitment as leaders not only carries them as dancers but also as activists against drugs, violence, and the everyday battles that other youth struggle with in our society.
Fatally Unique's strategy is to teach through the urban arts of dance, primarily hip hop. Through this, they focus on leadership, fitness, self-confidence and high expectations in their educational lives with discipline. Fatally Unique is known for their eye catching costumes and hair styles. They have won many dance competitions across the US such as 1st place in a Dance Competition on National Television (1.2 Million viewers) BET’s 106 & Park in N.Y.C. In summer of 2010, Fatally Unique returned to BET’s 106 & Park in N.Y.C where they won 1st place in the All-Stars. Fatally Unique was invited back to N.Y.C. to compete at BET’s Blaze the Stage Dance competition where they also won 1st place against the top 15 teams in the country. Lately, they have been performing all over the country, making appearances at schools & encouraging the youth to “Dare to Be Ambitious beyond Understanding.” 1
