Tongva Park invites people of all ages and levels to participate in a high-energy hip hop dance class that will include a blend of street styles.

On Wednesday, July 8th, from 7:30 – 9:00pm, Tongva After Dark presents a dynamic introductory lesson with Antics, a hip hop dance theater company based in Los Angeles under the artistic direction of Amy “Catfox” Campion. Antics’ style incorporates breakdancing, krumping, locking, popping, Capoeira, DJ’s, spoken word, theater, and film into hand-clapping, foot-stomping performances. Speaking the language of hip hop culture, Antics’ powerful style has been featured at many festivals and venues including the San Francisco Hip Hop Dance Fest, the J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival, the B-Girl Be Festival in Minneapolis, the Ford Theatre, REDCAT and the Music Center. Antics brings their energy and style to Tongva Park so attendees can sample hip hop for themselves. Bring sneakers and be prepared to be MOVED.
