A-Town Community Hip-Hop Jam

With Versa-Style Dance Company

Saturday, Oct. 19

Underground Dance Company and Drift Gallery Dance Studio

The dancers of Versa-Style are more than just fun to watch. They’re artists on a mission: to bring people together through dance and to empower youth through movement and hip-hop culture. Company founders Jackie Lopez (aka Miss Funk) and Leigh Foaad (aka Breeze-Lee) have won numerous dance competition awards nationally.

Versa Style Dance Company brought down the house when they performed in Anchorage in 2017. Now they’re back, working alongside Alaska hip-hop educators and leaders as part of Anchorage Concert Association’s community engagement program. That work has led to professional development workshops, Alaska hip-hop leaders being guests at a festival in LA, and now the A-Town Community Hip-Hop Jam with workshops and open style battles. Special guests include Versa-Style dancers and Alaskan and Red Bull Bboy 2019 champion Ives Viray.

All dancers are welcome. Register in person at the event.
