The event features performances by Beatz n Pieces, Agatron, Fluidgirl, and Too Wet.
Whether it be the ballet-esque glides of Jook dancing from Memphis, the emotionally expressive storytelling mime-like moves of Turf dancing from Oakland, or the aggressively convulsive theatrics of Krump dancing from Los Angeles, these styles of vernacular dance have emerged from a street dance tradition rooted in the African American heritage of funk and hip hop culture and have become a multicultural phenomenon.
