Two years and five countries later, All The Way Live, the largest urban dance festival in northern California is back at Ohlone College and better than ever!
"Urban dance," also known as "street dance," found its beginning in the streets of New York in the 1970s. Since then, it has evolved into a more rigorous, athletic style of dance, including popping, locking, gliding, jumping, break-dancing and, more often than not, making it all up on the spot, known as free-styling. Known as "Bboys" and "Bgirls," individuals and dance crews of all styles and levels will come to Ohlone College September 7-8 to join the festivities.
The two-day dance festival features six dance competition categories, including the new "Hip Hop Choreography" competition. In addition to some of California's best hip hop movers, many world-renowned dancers will make appearances and showcase their skills.
Various events will be held over the two days, including the exciting Bgirl, locking, and popping battles; special guest performances from some favorite dancers; fun interactive workshops; and the highly anticipated Crew vs. Crew Bboy Battle.
All The Way Live has toured the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, and throughout the USA, and plans a weeklong outreach tour targeting Bay Area youth. So, come and feel good about free-styling the day away!
