The multi-talented group was in good spirits as they celebrated this remarkable milestone at their new home at Luxor. Nearing 1:30 a.m., the group made their way to center stage as the dance crew was presented with a two-tiered cake by Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers of Star Wars. The cake came complete with the show’s name “PRiSM” and the signature Jabbawockeez mask. Confetti burst into the air as Chris “Cristyle” Gatdula accepted the cake and posed for photographs with his crewmates.
