Building Blocks 3 [SIV538] 

6/16/18: Last Saturday, Steve "Wish" Shannon organized an all ages, hip hop jam at the Swan Dojo in downtown Burlington. Dancers performed outside at the top of Church Street and Anthill Collective worked on graffiti art. Later in the evening, DJs spun records inside while dancers competed in the 2vs2 Breakin' Battle. Eva talked to Wish and his friends about the real purpose of the event, to provide a community space for youth to learn about and experience the four elements of hip hop: DJing, rapping, making graffiti art and b-boying.

Music: Otis McDonald, "Put It On the Floor"

Boomslang, "If You Want It (Come Get It)" Attack the Vampire, "Hands High"

Joe Bagale, "Dream Wide"
