Ohlone College Hosts Two-Day Urban Dance Festival - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—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 be coming to Ohlone College on September 7-8 to join in 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 be making appearances and showcasing 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, which has toured in the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, and throughout the US, uses dance as a means to reach out to under-privileged, at-risk youth all over the world and has planned a weeklong outreach tour targeting Bay Area youth. So, you can come and feel good about free-styling the day away!
