Black Dancing Bodies, is an intersectional project that captures the knowledge, beauty, and power of Black female street dancers. It seeks to look beyond the traditional lens of exposure for Black bodies in dance, which has overwhelmingly focused on Eurocentric dance aesthetics, including modern, contemporary, and ballet. Launched in 2018, the Black Dancing Bodies Project is an ongoing documentary effort to represent Black women in street and club dance culture.
Join Ladies of Hip-Hop Executive Director & Black Dancing Bodies creator, Michele Byrd-McPhee, and Ladies of Hip-Hop Chairwoman, LaTasha Barnes with Tweetboogie, Ebony Nichols, Deborah Conton, Reyna Nunez for a discussion on women in hip-hop and the Black Dancing Bodies Project.

Join hip-hop instructor, Ladies of Hip-Hop ambassador, and South Bronx native, Tweetboogie for a masterclass in hip-hop.
Tweetie will introduce you to hip-hop culture through dance and music, encouraging each individuals’ unique style. Beginning with a basic warm-up to stretch and tone the body, this class will challenge every dancer with the dynamics of movement and combinations.
As a part of Ladies of Hip-Hop, Tweetboogie’s goal is to bring together girls and women of all ages and abilities across the world to celebrate street dance culture through music and dance.
