Experience street dance in Cincinnati like you've never seen it before. A complete production full of Breaking, Popping, Locking, House, Krump, HipHop, Memphis Jookin, and West African street styles.  All done to the music these dances were born of.  Funk, Hip Hop, Electronic etc...

Happening in the Harriet Tubman theatre in the Freedom Center, featuring local street dancers of all ages, this will definitely be an EXPERIENCE to remember.

With special guest BASKOTY DJONZE 

"Basko" is a choreographed dancer from Gabon who started dancing on the streets of Libreville in 2007. He is one of the most successful dancers in the battle circuit in Central Africa. Parallel to his rise in the world of the competition, the dancer crossed the gates of the institute Francais du Gabon in 2013 where he is still in residence now. This partnership brings Basko to choreographic creation where there is a real desire to share, but also to tell their visions of life to the public. In 2015 they created a Street Dance called Zyeute Dance, a very popular dance in Gabon and one of the most popular dances in Africa, and he continues to travel around the world to exchange, share and meet various professional dancers.
