Philippe (ILL_PHIL) Gonzales
Philippe (ILL_PHIL) Gonzales started dancing in 2000 through a friend who asked him to do a pageant talent show. Once he found the love for dancing he never looked back. Starting his own crew in 2009, Phil formed the most dynamic dance crew -- “FootSoulgerz Krew” -- to hit the Dallas scene. The Footsoulgerz name was inspired by his favorite childhood cartoon: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Hyping and charming the crowd, Phil constantly displays his passion for dance during his energetic performances on stage. Phil also has as a bigger goal than dance, and that’s sharing the word and inspiring people through his talent. Always a true believer in his faith, he makes sure God comes first before anything.
