May Crew Throwdown

Each month we’ll host a Crew Throwdown on Facebook where YOU get to vote for which crew you want to see highlighted next!

This month’s crew, as chosen by votes on Dance Central’s Facebook Page, is . . .


Let’s see how their style has evolved!


Angel and Miss Aubrey both go back to the earliest days of Dance Central. As a duo, they combine the elegance and formal training of ballet with the passion and smoothness of Latin music. They also prove that while you don’t have to wear super stylish clothes while performing killer moves, it doesn’t hurt. While Angel brought the enviable ab muscles, Miss Aubrey rocked some red suspenders that have showed up in cosplay and fan art since Dance Central first hit shelves.

Angel happens to be the default character for what remains as one of the most-played songs at conventions: “Poison” by Bell Biv Devoe. Also, if you’ve never checked out Angel’s back up dancers, you’re missing out. Look at that style!

We did a really awesome Dance Central Sketchbook blog post way back in February 2011. Not only did we chat with lead character artist Matt Perlot about just who Angel and Aubrey are, we got a glimpse of some neat feature art. If you missed it, check it out here: Sketchbook 2: Meet Angel & Aubrey.


In case you couldn’t tell from the original Dance Central, Miss Aubrey and Angel have some money and they like to spend it. We don’t just mean by accessorizing fabulous outfits. They also own things like yachts.

Yachts with landing pads. For helicopters. (Totally normal thing to own, right?)

A lot of work and fashion research went into getting Lu$h crew’s nautical inspired outfits just right. Miss Aubrey may be on the cutting edge of fashion, but she is not gaudy and wouldn’t dream of over-accessorizing.

Their secondary outfits were where the Lu$h crew really demonstrated just how far they are willing to go for fashion. After all, how many people could really pull off a white body suit, oversized belt, purple scarf, and driving gloves? And dance in it while wearing knee-high boots? The answer is: it’s a very short list.


After joining DCI for the time-traveling Dance Central 3, where could Angel and Aubrey possibly be sent other than the era of bell bottoms and feathered hair: the 1970s!

And anyone who is anyone knows that the place to be was the roller rink. Of course Angel and Aubrey would spend their time at the hippest hot spot of the time, even if Aubrey is a bit disgusted by the smell of hot dogs and sweaty socks.

Of course in the game it’s never so empty, and you fans with your killer moves probably spend more time with it in Peak State, so maybe this looks more familiar:

Aubrey and Angel commit fully to their 1970s gig, but once they’re safely back to the present day and DCI Headquarters, they get back to serious fashion business. Aubrey settles back into another crazy body suit. Angel brings back the rings, spats, and low necklines.


Whether it was Aubrey’s tough love or Angel’s gentle crooning that caught your eye, if Lu$h is your crew, you should show your pride. We’ve updated the Harmonix merch store with some sweet new crew gear. In addition, we’ve also added some Boomy phone cases to the store!

You can shop now at either the U.S. or European store!
