H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory is a multi-platformed, international, non-profit arts organization founded by Artistic Director Safi A. Thomas to preserve, evolve, and proliferate the art form of Hip-Hop Dance through initiatives in pedagogy, repertory, advocacy, medical research, infrastructure, and design. Hip Hop Dance Conservatory’s classes and programs provide a structured and nonjudgmental environment taking students through the foundational cornerstones of the art including Popping, Boogaloo, Locking, Rocking, Breaking, and Party Dance together with a Live DJ.
Zach Seeger is a painter, writer and curator who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up in Endwell, NY and spent his summers in the Adirondack Mountains. Seeger holds an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (Providence, RI) and BFA from Binghamton University (Binghamton, NY). Recent solo exhibitions include, Watson at Karstan and Gorse (Wappingers Falls, NY), November, Defend Brooklyn (New York, NY) and Cheese Burghers of Calais curated by Nicholas Cueva, Zrobili (Brooklyn, NY).

The Space Station, by This Friday or Next Friday, premieres at this year’s Live at the Archway. Tfnf is likely the tiniest, most inconsequential art gallery in DUMBO, Brooklyn, probably in NYC, and maybe on the face of the earth. It was founded by Nathan Sinai Rayman, and he runs it with Zach Seeger, his Director of Programs.
