B-SIDE #3 is a five-part event dedicated to thinking, training, and researching street dance. B-SIDE provides a stimulating platform that facilitates greater cultural exchange, and more focused exploration and insight into choreographic development for street dance, overall.
>>> ‘B-Side’, in Hip-Hop terms, refers to the backside of a vinyl record. Many have found lost gems, remixes, live cuts as well as limited editions!
June 13-23 – RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY FOR STREET DANCERS
For 10 days, the experimental lab research allows 8 artists to explore an embryonic idea in the studio before presenting it in an informal setting. B-SIDE allows free reign as to choices and artistic orientations. Mentors will be on hand to give advice and orientation to artists.
