CUBE-ical Football

Though they delivered a heart-stopping performance at the World Cup in Germany in 2006, they failed to net a single goal. Despite a stellar outing, they won't be the team to beat at the next World Cup in South Africa in 2010. Yet they share the same deftness and surefootedness as the world's greatest football stars that make news headlines today.

The Living Room caught up with CUBE - a freestyle football dance group whose 12 members are masters of keeping the ball in play as they execute nifty footwork and manoeuvres to the rhythm of drums and the pulse of music. They call Saitama prefecture (just outside of the Japanese capital, Tokyo) their home.

The group (represented by Osam, Indy, Marco and Aki in the photo above) has been a round for five years and this is the first time they're displaying their skills as a team in Singapore. If you miss their live performances, here's a sample of the moves they showed us at our studio.
