Unason was formed from the love and passion for dance. When Tim Nguyen introduced Vi Dieu and Manuel (Manny) Laynez to each other, none of them had a clue that the meeting would help them build a home together. A home to foster the love for dance and allow anyone who have an interest in dance; whether they’re just starting out, a professional dancer trying to branch out of their comfort zone or they just enjoy watching people converse through movements. Unason is a home to unite that love as one. They recruited individuals to nurture that love and invited Tim and Kathleen Tudlor to choreograph for a competition. Together, the four choreographers provided the “crew” with original dance piece(s), unique to their own style for the competition.
On April 21, 2011, Unason debuted at University of Houston’s Best Dance Crew, with the original 9 members; Vi Dieu, Manuel Laynez, Tim Nguyen, Kathleen Tudlor, Anthony Nguyen, Deondria Taylor, Hoa Dieu, Van Tran, and Richard Phuong. Unason marks that date as its official birthday and celebrate it yearly since their first performance. In the same year, Unason recruited new members and invited guest dancers to compete in the Unity talent show hosted by University of Houston's Omega Phi Gamma and placed 1st.
As Unason grew with the dance community and branched off from just being a student organization at University of Houston. They recruited a new choreographer, Andrew Nguyen, new members and expanded their opportunities to dance and perform. In 2012, Unason was 1 of 2 groups invited to compete at Yesterday, Today, Forever, Houston, a concert hosted by many YouTube celebrities, including but not limited to; Ryan Higa, KevJumba, Detrix and Victor King of Quest Crew (America’s Best Dance Crew, 3rd season Champion). After YTF Houston, Unason continues to enjoy success in the dance community, branching out to different music genre.
In 2013, the group decided to enter a Korean, K-Pop competition for fun and received the grand prize at the event. That same year, Unason was invited as 1 of 8 finalists and the only dance crew in the Kalloboration Houston competition. Unason will continue to celebrate their love and passion for dance in their diverse dance community. Check out the Events page for upcoming performances by Unason and hope to see you there!
