Celebrate New York City’s extraordinary club, street, and social dance artists. Don’t miss this one night takeover of Alice Tully Hall, when the Works & Process Underground Uptown Dance Festival expands from the Guggenheim, crossing town to Lincoln Center. Spanning the continuum of concert and social dance, Ephrat Asherie Dance, Omari Wiles’ Les Ballet Afrik, It’s Showtime NYC!, Ladies of Hip-Hop, Courtney “Balenciaga” Washington’s MasterZ at Work Dance Family, The Missing Element featuring The Beatbox House, and The Big Show by Princess Lockerooo’s The Fabulous Waack Dancers take to the stage. Simultaneously, Mai Le Ho’s LayeRhythm, Kwikstep and Rokafella’s Behind The Groove, and the Underground Uptown Ball call for all to jump into the cypher.
All projects resourced long-term from studio-to-stage with fully funded Works & Process LaunchPAD creative residencies.
This project is a part of JanArtsNYC, one of the largest and most influential gatherings where more than 45,000 performing arts leaders, artists, and enthusiasts from across the globe converge in NYC.
