Second place isnt so bad when its second place in the whole frigging country, so forgive us if we dont bother feeling sorry for the dancers of the So Real hip-hop troupe. The group took home second-place honors on last years Americas Best Dance Crewreality show, and theyve been dancing nonstop since then. Today they take the stage as part of Dance Houstons Edge Hip Hop Festival. More than 150 local dancers/poppers/crunkers and hip-hoppers join them, including Wyld Style and Planet Funk. Also performing is Inertia, the dance group from Westside High School. The troupe won a national title last year and three of Inertia alums are also performing today, as members of the professional companies. Westside is the only school to be invited to this years festival. 8 p.m. Wortham Center, 501 Texas. For information, call 713-526-1049 or visit www.dancehouston.org. $15 to $31.50.
