Event Details

The Schomburg's Hip-Hop 4.0 Initiative presents the kickoff to The Apollo Theater's Breakin Convention with a panel discussion featuring hip-hop dance legends and participating artists. The discussion, led by the festival's artistic director Jonzi D and moderated by Kamilah Forbes, will explore the art form's evolution from hip-hop dance, originated in the Bronx in the late 1970s, to hip hop dance theater's development and global expansion. 

In collaboration with The Apollo Theater.
