Hip Hop freestyle workshop with Oliver, April 9th 3:30 - 5pm 🎉

A dance style originating from NYC (specifically the Bronx) from Black, Brown and Latin culture in the 1970s. The first Hip Hop party was dated August 11 1973, with legendary DJ Kool Herc at 1520 Sedgwick Ave. As Hip Hop music exploded throughout the clubs in NYC, Hip Hop freestyle became a style consisting of party and social dances and trends based on what was going on at the parties and clubs. 

Come join this super cool workshop.
