Street dance has only recently begun to be performed at the Ford Amphitheatre, starting with J.U.i.C.E.’s ground breaking show, Breaking the Cypher, in 2007. This year, LA’s top Hip Hop dancer-choreographers — Amy ‘Catfox’ Campion, Jacob ‘Kujo’ Lyons, Emiko Sugiyama and others — use dazzling upside-down spins, intricate footwork, twisted freezes and gravity-defying flips as an expressive vocabulary. This innovative street dance festival, set to the body rocking beats of a live DJ, spliced with spoken word poetry and live graffiti art, is sure to please traditional theater goers and Hip Hop heads alike.

The J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival is an annual showcase of cutting-edge street dance choreography and hip hop culture produced by Antics Performance and J.U.i.C.E. at the outdoor, 1241-seat Ford Amphitheatre. It will take place on Sat. Oct. 2th, 2010.

JHHDF unites the rhythmic virtuosity and extreme physicality of street dance to “expand [hip hop’s] creative horizons” (Lewis Segal, L.A. Times). Artistic Directors Amy “Catfox” Campion, Jacob “Kujo” Lyons and Emiko Sugiyama bring LA’s freshest street dance choreographers to the stage to celebrate and revolutionize hip hop dance.
