East Bay Center for Performing Arts celebrates local hip hop culture
on October 17, 2011
Industry recognized choreographers who got their start here, 14-year-old b-boys and a pulsing Cuban DJ filled East Bay Center for Performing Arts with style and swag Friday night as part of a month long celebration of the studio’s grand re-opening. Throughout October this Richmond caldron of culture is hosting performances ranging from Konyifafa dance theater to a Mien ceremonial feast and cultural festival to last weekend’s hip hop showcase, which included spoken word, dance crews – including Urban Ballet and House Authority – and a collection of other acts.
