You’ve probably heard by now that a renowned international festival of hip hop dance is headed to the Queen City this fall, and we are beyond thrilled to bring it to you! Direct from London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Breakin’ Convention invades Uptown’s Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts Oct. 9-10, featuring performances by hip hop stars from around the globe and from the neighborhoods of Charlotte.

That’s right! This incredible event welcomes local talent as well. Get involved, Charlotte! This is not something you want to miss. You might be wondering: “What is Breakin’ Convention like?” “What does it take to get involved?” Just check out the video below and hear from the artistic director himself, Jonzi D!

This two-day celebration of hip hop culture will feature Friday and Saturday night shows at the Knight Theater that take hip hop dance off the streets and onto the stage, showcasing some of the world’s great hip hop stars in the process. During the day, enjoy free activities and performances in venues across the Levine campus, including DJs, graffiti, hip hop dance workshops where you can test your skills, free performances, after-parties and much more.

The RuggedsTickets for the Friday and Saturday evening shows will go on sale later in the year. No tickets needed for the many free festival shows and special activities.
