2023 “Get Free” Hip Hop Dance Festival: Kick Off Weekend (July 1-2)
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Get Free is a free weeklong hip hop dance festival rooted in the artistry of freestyling, experimental battling, healing through community practices, and love for Black social dance and our Bay Area street community.
This festival offers an opening showcase, 20 dance classes, 2 panels, and two experimental battle events.
Get Free is a space to express an artist’s personal story. We extend an invitation to shatter gender and race constructs and disrupt the commercial veneer a dancer’s body often experiences in both hip hop and concert dance landscapes. The mass outpouring of attendees at previous Get Free festivals showed us a need for street dance artists to express tender, autobiographical narratives of the body. Together, we work to transcribe autobiographical narratives with artists whose bodies have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racism.
