HISTORY

Hip hop • 1997 - 2007

Breakin' Barriers

At the start of the millennium, driven by our passion for breaking and hip-hop, we took our first steps into a world without boundaries. Every gesture told a story, every movement was an explosion of energy.

From Style FX, Got Skillz, Le Funk, and Groove Kings to Got Skills UDS led by Jason R. Jeandor - we rocked the dance floor. Shows on "Holland's Got Talent" and "So You Think You Can Dance" were just the beginning. For us, hip-hop was more than dance; it was a lifestyle, an expression of our dance family bond.

Vogue • 2007 - 2017

Embracing diversity

In 2007, we took a bold new direction by mixing hip-hop and breakdance with clubbing and vogue. This fresh blend made us a household name and heralded the founding of "The House of ShoQlat," the first Dutch vogue-femme house.

We became a symbol of diversity and inclusion, as confirmed by our appearance on the cover of Winq magazine. We created a place where everyone, regardless of their background, could be themselves and let their unique talent shine.

Urban • 2017 - 2027

Bridging Cultures

Xclusiv stands for so much more than just dance; it is the fusion of identities, styles, and cultures. Our journey is full of highlights: from victories with Luciano in "Move Like Michael Jackson" to successes with ShoQlat at vogue balls in England and recognition as the first professional urban dance company in Rotterdam's cultural plan.

Our continuous development shows that (urban) dance has the power to bring worlds together. We are a source of inspiration and a platform where everyone can learn about and experience the transformative power of dance.

STATEMENT

Jason R. Jeandor

Dance and music are essential to our human existence, crucial for personal and communal experiences. They reflect and shape our culture and identity.

My artistic vision rests on my belief that urban arts demonstrate a balance between strength and vulnerability, provide deep satisfaction, and challenge our boundaries. Thus, I utilize the connecting power of urban arts, combined with current themes, to create a platform for reflection on identity, growth, and the future.

With my company, I am building a future where acceptance is central, by promoting the fusion of hip-hop/urban with clubbing/ballroom cultures and supporting the development of dancers and young creators, always emphasizing our unique strength and culture.

FACTS & HIGHLIGHTS

Xclusiv Company (Xclusiv) received a positive decision on the cultural plan application in 2017, to work on strengthening its signature with urban dance as the basis for performances. The structure of our performances is narrative. Every four years, personal themes are elaborated under the main theme of identity.

We are also a frontrunner in how our company approaches the LGBTQ+ scene and themes. Our working method approaches a collective authorship where co-creation is paramount and dancers contribute from different perspectives to the creation of an impactful production.

Since our start, we have received much confidence in our artistic expression and craftsmanship.

In 2007, we took a bold step by mixing vogue with hip-hop and breakdance. This innovative mix put us on the map and marked the founding of “The House of ShoQlat,” the first Dutch vogue-femme house. Our appearance on the cover of Winq magazine was no coincidence; it was proof of our impact.

Xclusiv became a symbol of diversity and inclusion. We created a place where everyone, regardless of background, could be themselves and where unique talent was in the spotlight. “The House of ShoQlat” is a leading group in the vogue dance scene, known for their exceptional performances and style. This group, deeply rooted in the rich traditions of voguing, a dance style that emerged in the late ’80s and early ’90s within the LGBTQ+ community, has won multiple titles at prestigious events like the Vogueball in Liverpool.

At this Vogueball, an event celebrating creativity and expression within the vogue community, “The House of ShoQlat” distinguished themselves with their unique interpretation of the vogue dance style and their ability to tell a story through movement. With wins in various categories, such as “Best Performance” and “Best Costume,” they affirmed their status as one of the leading houses in the vogue world. Their success in Liverpool is not only a testament to their talent but also to their dedication to the art of voguing and its cultural significance.

The “Seven 2 Smoke” is a competitive format in the breakdance world that originated in the early 2000s in Rotterdam South and the Rotterdam Breakdance scene. Co-created by Jason R. Jeandor, along with other prominent figures in the breakdance community, this concept quickly became popular in the global dance scene.

What makes “Seven 2 Smoke” unique is its intensive battle format where eight dancers compete in a knockout system. Each dancer must defeat seven opponents to win, requiring a high degree of endurance and versatility. Jason R. Jeandor was not only one of the creators of this format but also the very first winner when the concept was conceived by dancers from Got Skills Crew and 010-Bboys. This established our name as an innovator in the hip-hop and breakdance world.

Urban dance and music genres like hip-hop, urban, and dance are popular among young people, as well as among those in their thirties, forties, and fifties who grew up with hip-hop, urban, ballroom, and clubbing culture.

This makes urban art forms a beautiful and accessible way to address current and sometimes difficult-to-discuss topics. These art forms provide a great foundation for creating groundbreaking productions and encouraging free development. The diversity within the different art forms offers something for everyone.
