FUNKANOMETRY HIP HOP DUO
Funkanometry is a dynamic Hip Hop and Popping dance duo from Vancouver Island, Canada. Jacksun Fryer and Carlow Rush came together through their love for dance and shared goofy personalities, leading to the formation of “Funkanometry.” The duo spent their first two years competing in local dance battles and classes, receiving many high-class awards and recognition for their performances. Their electrifying performances garnered extraordinary reactions from the audience, and they knew they had something special.
Their breakthrough came in 2019 when they were scouted for NBC’s World of Dance, where they impressed judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough with their performances. Funkanometry even returned for Season 4 of the reality TV show in 2020. After the show, the duo gained a significant following on social media and were interviewed on multiple international televisions, newspapers, and magazines. But it wasn’t until 2020 that their online presence took off. With the pandemic shutting down live performances, Funkanometry decided to take their craft to the internet to keep people connected and entertained. Like Funkanometry, people simply wanted to feel happy in a scary time. For this reason, people began to follow Funkanometry’s online journey.
After their aired audition for America’s Got Talent in 2022, Simon Cowell praised their performance as “fun and original”. Howie Mandel said their performance was “so good on so many levels.” The boys made it to the show’s semi-finals. Since then, Funkanometry has continued to post online, gaining a larger loyal following they call the “Funk Fam.” In December 2022, Funkanometry’s video to Eurythmics, “Sweet Dreams,” caught the attention of none other than Annie Lennox, who reposted it on her social media channels.
The boys are continuously enchanting audiences with their live performances, and captivating crowds at weddings, halftimes, birthdays, graduations, corporate events, and more. Additionally, they continue to share their passion through captivating online videos and offer dance lessons for individuals of all ages and skill levels. They are VERY grateful for their Funk Fam’s support and can’t thank them enough for keeping them inspired.
