Inspire positive change in young people through an exploration of the roots of hip hop culture with Hip Hop Fundamentals. This ensemble of dynamic and energetic dancers use breakdancing and abundant audience participation to explore hip hop’s rich cultural history and how Black youth changed the world. The performance focuses on youth empowerment, creativity, and working together embodied by hip hop’s four principles: Peace, Love, Unity, and Having Fun!

Since 2010, we’ve performed thousands of shows for schools, libraries, and youth organizations. All of our performances are co-designed by our Educational Director, classroom teacher Aaron Troisi. Performances can be adjusted for High School, Adult, and Special Needs populations. We can work with any theme or special event, so feel free to contact us with your collaborative vision.
