"YOUR JOB IS YOUR CHOREOGRAPHY,

ALL THE REST IS YOUR ADLIB."

Before its establishment, Theโ€‹ Addlib originated from Sunday dance classes led by its founder, Joe Abuda, who wanted a weekend diversion from their regular work as a writer. They organized classes whose most attendees were people who, like them, have day jobs. The success of the classes created a new set of friendships among regular attendees, which eventually gave birth to the idea of creating a new underground dance crew composed of people who have regular commitments like school or day jobs; people who were, at one point in their lives, forced to make a choice between building a career and following their passion for dance.


"ADD LIBERTY. ADD LIFE."


On 14 October 2008, The Addlib, with the asterisk (*) as their official insignia, was established with the initial goal of competing at the annual World Hip Hop Championships in the USA. With zero financial support, the group had to start from scratch – training and rehearsing along empty streets, outside convenience stores, or anywhere with a free mirror. Slowly, they worked their way through the tough entertainment industry and built a name for their own; making The Addlib one of the most sought-after dance companies in the Philippines.
โ€‹
On September 28, 2018, ten years after their establishment, The Addlib opened their own home, The Addlib Dance Studio. Then the following month, they headlined their major concert, celebrating their ten years, at the New Frontier Theater where all past and present members performed together.
