Founded in the Spring of 2005, Unofficial Project started off as BU’s premier Asian hip hop dance troupe. Combining elements of Asian and American hip hop culture, UPro promoted the similarities and link between the two genres. Since its debut at BU Vibes' 4th annual showcase, UPro has expanded from 5 founding members to a current 14. The group has also developed in terms of its dance palette, taking on the more modern forms of hip hop. While still keeping true to the appreciation of Asian as well as American culture, UPro has been inspired to take on new styles and ideas.
Unofficial Project has appeared at various locations at Boston University as well as around the New England area, including Brown University, Wellesley College, Boston College, and Bentley.
UPro has continuously challenged itself by taking part in various competitions:
-Elements Hip Hop Dance Competition
-Prelude New England Urban Dance Competition
-Kollaboration Boston 1
Boston's 1st ever Asian American talent show competition
