In partnership with Dancing in the Streets
It’s Showtime NYC! is the largest street dance group in New York City. A program of Dancing in the Streets to celebrate New York City street culture, the group provides performance and professional development opportunities to street and subway dancers as a legal alternative to dancing in subway cars. Led and managed by the dancers themselves, It’s Showtime NYC! has created a number of pieces and commissioned major new works from international dance makers such as Anne Nguyen (Paris) and Faustin Linyekula (Congo). The group regularly presents work in Battery Park and has been invited to perform at many events in the city including SummerStage, The Supreme Court, Crossing the Line Festival, Madison Square Park, The South Bronx Culture Trail, Bronx Museum of the Arts, El Museo del Barrio, Times Square, Weeksville Heritage Center and the Roberto Clemente Plaza. The group will be in residence at La Place (centre culturel hip-hop) in Paris in November.
