Turf Dance Battle tonight

December 18, 2009

Hyphy might have died but Turfin is going strong.  And just like b-boying dipped back into the undeground after the mid 80’s popularity, Turf dance crews are still battling on a regular basis, honing new moves and taking their shit talking around the country-And1 Style-to hoods across the country.

Tonight’s battle features competitions for Turf dancers, b-boys, and youngsters under 12. It’s the 1st at the new Green Youth Media Center but these battles have been happening on the low all across the bay for the last few years.

There’ll also be live painting, MC battles and a special award ceremony honoring community graf writer Refa1 and photographer/dancer Traci Bartlow.  Peep the styles in the vid and make your way to Telegraph Ave at 6pm for some distinctive Oakland footwork.
