WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Apollo presents Breakin' Convention: An International Festival of Hip-Hop Dance Theatre. The convention returns to the Apollo with a packed program featuring the best and brightest hip-hop dance companies from around the corner and around the world. The Apollo celebrates the global impact of its hip-hop roots with everything from mainstream to experimental dance, showcasing all the hallmarks of the genre: explosive energy, intricate step sequences, synchronicity, and choreography. International performers include the legendary Salah and Yeah Yellow of France, South Africa's Soweto Skeleton Movers, and the United Kingdom's Protocol. From New York, it's the legendary Dynamic Rockers, Rep Your Style, Harlem's own Bwreckfast Club from Litefeet Nation, Passion Fruit Dance Company, and Havoc & Klassic. Spilling off stage and taking over the whole building, workshops, graffiti, DJs, and dance battles make Breakin' Convention an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
