The closing event of the Urban Corps Festival is the true embodiment of Urban Corps’ message of cultural exchange. This final performance unites the French performers and local talents for a cross-cultural take on the tradition of battling dance crews. Followed by an open dance floor with music from DJ BARONHAWK.
This is the last event of a DC-wide festival. Urban Corps presents a modern take on the distinctive story of hip-hop from a transatlantic perspective, uniting French and American hip-hop dance crews, whose members come from France, the U.S., and Senegal. Their stories stem from such diverse training as classical dance, contemporary dance, Brazilian capoeira, circus and other performing arts, karate, gymnastics, and of course, American hip-hop.
