The DANCE EXHIBITION features Toronto’s top youth and professional street dancers in a number of different battles highlighting hip-hop, breaking, popping, and house, Our first round will focus on the community youth and alumni who have developed their skills alongside the guidance of Unity’s program facilitators.
For the second round, selected mentors from various established dance crews will battle alongside their top students against other mentor/student crews. And for our last round, a number of the most well-respected crews including CASINO BOYS, TENSE IMAGE, ALIBINO ZEBRAZ, WAREHOUSE JACKS, and many more will face off against each other for the first time on Unity’s dancefloor.
Once again, BEATBOX CANADA, the most respected champion of the beatbox community will showcase the underrated art of vocal percussion with an epic battle between Toronto’s top beatboxers in a 1 vs 1 musical battle for 20 years and under. Battle judges are Unity Alumni PARALLEL (Sparx & Psyreine) and WORDOFMOUF (Killabeatz & Subconcious) will represent this art as a part of the human narrative and beatboxers as true musicians while inspiring young talent to pursue new ways of artistic expression through their performances.
