World Hip Hop Competition

For those who don’t know yet, Ruby Gaviola-Guevarra was in Las Vegas last July to accompany her son Keeno for the 2011 World Hip Hop Competition. Keeno is part of the crew called Hataw, one of the dance groups that represented the Philippines in the prestigious dance contest. Hataw eventually landed in the Top 10.

We’ll add photos soon.
