The BBoy Connection Jam
Sunday, July 16, 2017 | 11 am to 4 pm
23rd and Valencia St, San Francisco

The BBoy Connection are kicking it off by taking over the Mission District with free dance classes and dance hip-hop history lessons with performances. Plus, they will have a roller skate dance area which is always a crowd favorite.

There will be performances from each instructor before each class, every top of the hour. Plus, there will be open cyphers as a warm up for everyone in between each hour. The best part and everyone’s favorite moment at this annual event is the Kids Dance Battle and the female dance session and performances.

Music will be provided by Zulu Nation All Tribes SF DJs.
