Breakin' Convention - Touring - Harlem, NYC - October 27 - 28 2017

Breakin' Convention is the world's biggest festival of hip hop dance theatre showcasing the very best from around the world and around the corner. Hosted by Jonzi D & Biz Markie.

Curated and hosted by UK hip hop pioneer Jonzi D, the sickest weekend of old school pioneers, cutting edge street dance companies and international b-boy crews - live on stage. Spilling off stage and taking over the whole building with dance workshops, graffiti, DJs and freestyle dance circles make Breakin' Convention an unforgettable experience for all the family.

International performers include the legendary Salah and Yeah Yellow of France, South Africa's Soweto Skeleton Movers, and the UK's Protocol. From New York, it's the legendary Dynamic Rockers, Rep Your Style, Harlem's own Bwreckfast Club from Litefeet Nation, Passion Fruit Dance Company and Havoc & Klassic. And all the way from Las Vegas the iconic Popin' Pete.
