SPITGAN : 今次香港區既賽事你覺得香港既Dancer表現如何呢？
Travis Pang : 今次香港Final的香港Dancer表現都很好！其實香港有不少勁人隱藏系到。但我想建議香港的Dancer要多去Party！由其與世界各地不同地方的人jam下，我地叫Cipher，圍圈的練習，隨機出去跳舞！多去Party，比賽時就會更放！
S : 有無一隊香港的團隊你特別記得或者喜歡？
T : 有一隊有3個香港人，2個日本女仔的，都算香港隊吧哈哈！他們叫Ganbatte Ganbaru。因為他們的隊員的舞蹈種類很齊全，基本上我們有的style項目他們都有參加1 on 1 單人賽。他們的All Style是最齊整的，齊舞的部分也很深刻。雖然他們最後沒有勝出，但對我的印象卻很深。
S : 下一年再辦的時候你覺得有什麼要改善或者加大力度去做呢？
T : 第4屆最想改善就是場地控制、人流、入場管控，什至想再請更多有質素的嘉賓。其實每一年我們都有個目標比自己，不想翻炒評判！所以每年的評判都會是新鮮滾熱辣，年年不同！DJ方面我們都希望有更多新鮮感，可能換一換MC或者DJ！所以下一年最緊要個場地設定，遮陰遮太陽、避雨的地方都會加多點。什至我們希望舞台不止一個！讓Dancer上台比賽前可以有一個熱身的區域，當他們真正上台比賽時更加放膽更加投入！
SPITGAN : What did you feel about the Hong Kong dance performances in general?
Travis Pang : All Hong Kong dancers in the finals did a great job! I believe Hong Kong has many great dancers. Having said that, I do want to suggest to our Hong Kong dancers : join more parties, dance with people from everywhere! We call it a cipher (dancing in a circle), but go out dancing randomly! Play more, join more parties. It will help a dancer be more bold when they are in competitions and on stage!
S : Any Hong Kong team you really like or you feel has great potential?
T : I remember one team had three Hong Kong people and two Japanese girls. We can count it as Hong Kong team haha! They are called Ganbatte Ganbaru. They are still in my mind because their dance styles covered most of the categories of our games! I think they joined every dance style’s 1 on 1 battles. All their style performances were tight. Although they didn’t win, I still can remember them.
S : Anything you would like to improve or upgrade on the SDK ASIA 2018?
T : The fourth SDK, we will definitely want to improve the site control, and flow. Even invite more high quality guests. Every year we have a goal, we don’t want to having same judges. So you can see we having different judges everytime. The DJ too, we also want to have more of a novelty style, maybe we will change our MC and/or DJ. The most important part in the coming SDK must be the venue setting! We will add more places to cover people from the elements. Furthermore, we hope we can have another stage next time. It will help our dancers have a warm-up before they really go on stage and battle, this can help them more prepared and courageous!
