Since 2009, hip-hop legends Kwikstep and Rokafella have curated Behind the Groove, a dance party that invites the community to freestyle to classic dance music. Without the pressure of competition or bar culture, the event allows dancers to organically engage in social exchange on the floor. Regularly held at the Nuyorican Poets Café, the party will come to the Guggenheim Museum’s rotunda during the café’s renovation in conjunction with the museum’s Member Mondays and presented by Works & Process. See popping, breaking, locking, uprocking, house, salsa, and hustle share the stage in a night spotlighting the music, dancers, and dances.
