Breakin’ Convention brings Hip Hop Culture to the Apollo Theater in Harlem

Breakin' Convention

Here’s a reminder that Tickets are still available for several events for the Breakin’ Convention this week at the Apollo Theater. It will be a Hip-Hop takeover at the Apollo with dancers from around the globe set to perform on the Apollo stage, as well as under the marquee and throughout the building from June 13 – 16.  Representing true Hip Hop culture, Breakin’ Convention will also feature workshops and discussions on the elements of Hip-Hop including DJing, live graffiti art, film clips and special tributes to hip hop dance icons.

The Apollo Theater launches its first global festival in June 2013 with the North American premiere of Breakin’ Convention –a hip-hop dance theater festival produced annually by UK based, Sadler’s Wells. Hip-Hop, which began as a distinctly American art form, in Bronx, NY, has extended its roots around the globe. This spring, the Apollo Theater and Sadler’s Wells London celebrate the global hip-hop dance theater culture with this four-day festival.
