Rennie Harris RHAW and Le Soul Afrique with Special Guest Akim Funk Buddha

Friday June 25 7:00 PM

St. Mary’s Park, Bronx

Rennie Harris RHAW showcases the newest up and coming faces in hip-hop street dance. Acting as a global hip-hop collective of dancers, MCs and vocalists, Le Soul Afrique is not just a dance company, but a dance and music powerhouse.

To attend the Hip Hop Old School Party and B-Boy Breaker Dance Class, come right at 7 p.m. and join us onstage for an old-school throw-down as members of RHAW lead you through funky and fresh moves from the past to the present. This class is open to everyone of all ages and skill levels.

Rennie Harris RHAW was conceived in 2007 as a youth organization driven by community outreach and education. Harris’ inspiration for this youth driven company was inspired by the overwhelming interest from teens and young adults to join his internationally renowned company, Rennie Harris Puremovement. RHAW is a company that teaches and performs street dance techniques such as Campbell Locking, Popping & Boogaloo, House and Hip Hop dance.

Le Soul Afrique is a New York-based Global hip-hop collective consisting of MCs, vocalists and dancers from all around the world, including Senegal, Haiti, Cuba, Brazil, and the West Indies. The group met in NYC’s underground scene and discovered a mutual passion for dance that infuses dynamic energy into their live performances. Characterized by upbeat vibes, intelligent lyrics, and earthy beats, Le Soul Afrique is next up to create a dancefloor Hip-Hop Revival. This performance will feature a special guest appearance by Akim Funk Buddha, whose company is also being presented at SummerStage Dance this season in Brooklyn.
