On March 23, Red Bull celebrated the unveiling of the 2022 season by hosting a launch party in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. With the Celeb Secrets team being one of the lucky few invited, guests (including us) were greeted with a Red Bull fanny pack, unlimited Mexican food, an open bar and a killer DJ. Upon entering the party, we discovered a massive dance floor with neon lights filled with dancers from all over dancing to the beat. We were even treated to a special dance featuring Breaking, Popping, and Krumping, which ultimately foreshadowed what to expect from the competition this season.
