While the IGC Legends Bracket year is as stacked as ever, the Open Tournament hosts a fair share of light show monsters, too.
The Open Tournament consists of two 64-man Swiss Style tournaments. The winner of each tournament gets a spot in the main event, the Legends Bracket, where they will face 14 Legends who have each won previous BOSS or IGC competitions in a single elimination bracket.
The competition will be intense, and the trades will be hot fire. Whether they are coming from out-of-state or representing the IGC homeland of Southern California, these 5 glovers are ones to keep an eye on.
In light of IGC coming up this Saturday, we decided to conduct some highly intensive research on the gloving community. What we found is that our competitors have all followed this exact 10 step formula to gloving stardom. Study up boys and girls!
Competitor Tickets are sold out, but you’ll need to grab a Spectator Ticket if you want to see the madness that is IGC this Saturday in Santa Ana, CA.

The 2015 IGC Legends Bracket this year is entirely stacked with some of the best glovers ever. There are representatives from all over the country facing off, and each one of these guys has earned Superhero status in the gloving community. This year, the Legends Bracket is going to be a battle that will go down in history with Waterloo, Normandy and that time Loki opened a portal over NYC.
The LEGENDS and their superhero alter egos:
[PM] Rhapsode – The Blue Ranger
Fear the words, “It’s morphing time” when it comes to this guy. His digits and dials are creative as can be, but Rhapsode’s true skill comes from his ability to pantomime concepts and create humorous illusions. This power ranger was a favorite to win IGC last year and has only leveled up since.
Hello Gloving Universe!!!!!!
Welcome back to my neck of the woods, where we talk a little about the glovers who grace our weekly Sunday Feature Videos. This week there is an absolutely palpable IGC fever in the air, and what a better way to kick off IGC Week than with a group performance by Style Over Everything.
With IGC only 9 days away, we caught up reigning champion [PM] Ice Kream Teddy to gain insight on his mentality leading up to the tournament, his thoughts on the competition, and his place in gloving history.
Each day of TomorrowWorld got off to a rainy start, but by afternoon, the climate was cloudy with a high chance of light shows.
The roster, which included names like [3M] Jest from Minnesota, [ST] Torq from Florida and [EF] Vulcan from New York, bonded throughout the festival, and the trading of ideas and concepts between glovers and orbiters took their lights shows to another level.
… we asked ourselves this fine morning, gently stroking Teddy’s beard in unison.
Well, we ran an analysis to see exactly where this year’s IGC competitors were coming from, and the results were pretty inspiring. Check out this dope map!
Hello Gloving Universe!
This week we have a rather unique video making its way to your screens, a collaboration between 5 of the best and most well known girl glovers in the game! These girls are some of the heaviest hitters in the scene. Let’s watch this insanely firey video, “From The Shadows,” then get to know them all a little better.
After an unforgettable summer full of flow arts and festivals, orbiter Allazo has challenged the undisputed leader of the orbiting community, [ST] Torq, to a battle at TomorrowWorld. Both members are the only orbiters on this festival’s FaceMelt Crew, which includes glovers like [3M] Jest, [LLB] Starlight and [EF] Vulcan, but their battle has been highly anticipated since Allazo called Torq out on Starlight earlier this month.
What is the Concept?
While this isn’t a concept in the same way as tutting or finger rolls, picking the colors of your lights is just as important as anything. Lights give glovers an advantage over a lot of other styles of dancing because we have the ability to portray emotion through the colors we choose. They can be completely random color sets, or they can have special meaning behind them. Whether you’re rocking programmable sets or sticking with classic bulbs, your sets are always part of you.
This article, I’m going to be covering a few different ways people choose their colors as well as some basics tips and tricks. Remember, these aren’t rules to picking sets. They are just ideas and tips for you to use and expand with.
