Talking Shop: The Evolution of Breakdancing on Mitchell Street at Mitchell Street

Saturday, March 23, 2019 - 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Audience: Adults/ Young Adults (Teens)

Categories: Entertainment/Recreation, Educational Interest

The Gathering Art, Stories and Place project is excited to host the next installment of our Talking Shop series, focusing on the evolution of breakdancing and hip hop dance on Mitchell Street. Join us for a roundtable conversation featuring some of Milwaukee's breakdancing pioneers representing different waves of breakers. There will be breakdancing demonstrations and a lesson on breaking. We are also issuing an open invitation to any and all breakers to share memories and stories. Our emcee for the afternoon will be Cedric Gardner, who first gained national attention in 2007 when he was a finalist on So You Think You Can Dance. Since then, he's danced in films such as Step Up 3D, worked on choreography for the Fox show Empire and made appearances on Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba! Now back in Milwaukee, Cedric works at the Don & Sallie Davis Boys & Girls Club, teaching 7 to 18-year-olds to pop, lock and air-walk.
