Hip Hop Theory is pleased to host Prelude New York Dance Competition!
This event is scheduled for Saturday, February 15, 2014 at Lehman College-Lovinger Theatre; Bronx, NY.
In the past, Prelude successfully showcased some of the best hip-hop dance teams from across the nation. Prelude NY will display the creative abilities of various dance teams from different boroughs in New York City and surrounding regions. Our mission is to support the dance community with a competition showcasing local and regional dance groups. By training and preparing for this event, we hope to enrich, strengthen and improve individual dancers and their dance groups.
Since the first Prelude EC was introduced in 2008, there has been a growing dance community in the East Coast! Stemming from Boston to Baltimore, the Carolinas and all the way down South as far as Florida.
One area in particular that has seen such a tremendous growth is within the New Jersey/New York Dance community! In the span of 4 years, dance teams in these areas have increased. Not only increased the number of groups formed, but also great development in skill by existing dance groups. In order to showcase the increased talent and ever growing dance community, Prelude New York is established. Come and be apart of this amazing experience in the Bronx; the home and birthplace of hip-hop.
Hip Hop Theory The Company is a Bronx based Dance Company, founded by Maurice Dean an Alumni of Lehman College. Hip Hop Theory started in May of 2005 in the Lovinger Theatre at Lehman College and showcased young dancer/ choreographers of the college.
The Mission of Hip Hop Theory The Company is to present hip hop dance in the form of “concert dance”, taking away what the media driven stereotypes of the hip hop genre which promotes misogyny, gang violence and or negativity in general. Hip Hop in a different light.
Through hip hop dance we hope to enlighten the masses of how hip hop dance can inspire change for the betterment and promote a different outlook from its stereotypical past. Hip Hop Theory The Company will take hip hop dance from just being considered to be a street dance to being an art form, provide an outlet for youth development through dance education, preservation of the foundations of hip hop dance, and project a positive outlook of Hip Hop Dance for future generation.
