LOS ANGELES - Former America's Best Dance Crew (ABCD) champions, Quest Crew, threw their annual Halloween and birthday party in Los Angeles.

“Our first performance as Quest was Halloween six years ago. Can you believe that?” said Aris Paracuelles.

The southern California-based Quest Crew won the MTV reality series back in 2010 and have been touring with music group LMFAO since.
   
“Life since ABDC has been like climbing a ladder, you start low and it just gets crazier and crazier and then we haven't even hit our peak yet. It gets crazier and crazier so far we've been blessed with a lot of stuff,” Paracuelles added.

Aamong the attendees were other America's Best Dance Crew alumni, many of them dressed in costume.  

“I see a lot of familiar faces here it's going to be a fun night,” said Jed Florano of Team Milennium.

Throughout seven seasons, dozens of Filipino-Americans have been able to showcase their talents on America's Best Dance Crew.
   
Several Fil-Am powered groups have won the vote-driven championships.

“It basically made every Filipino artists' dream come true. We never thought there would be a venue for us to live off art. Most Filipinos, all our parents, want us to be doctors, professionals, lawyers, whatever. But I feel like the show America’s Best Dance Crew gave a haven for Filipino dancers to become professional dancers,” said Justin Jet Li Valles of Poreotics.
