    About: We come from all different teams in the community and have come together to do our own thing. This team gives each and every member a fair chance to direct and choreograph. We don’t think too hard into our sets, nor do we make our sets to impress anyone. We’re just here to perform, inspire and do things our own way. Dance is our escape from our busy, crazy, stressful lives in the big city. We dance as an escape to remind us we can always do what we love in the end. What’s most important to us is that we’re dancing with each other.

  • About: BreakFree Hip Hop’s mission is twofold! Firstly, BreakFree Hip Hop Crew: We are a family of dancers who share creativity and encourage one another to be true to ourselves. We originally choreograph our own dances to share with others who we are. Throughout the year, we perform at events and shows, and we set up flashmobs. The BreakFree crew’s admission is through audition-only, and every year, we organize and headline a showcase that attracts hundreds of people.Secondly, BreakFree Hip Hop Workshop: We, as a crew, offer free dance classes to everyone on campus without charge or weekly commitment. The dance classes are held weekly, and participants can attend at their own leisure. Each class is taught by a different member of BreakFree and is full of energy. The desire to dance is universal, and we want to spread and share our own love for dance to the entire Cornell community!

Unique Movement

10372197_660110000726757_7030576357406760459_n

    About: Unique Movement Dance Crew was started in 2009 by a group of high school kids. They formed this group so they can perform at their high school show. As time went on, they decided to keep the group and perform at future shows. The dance crew itself kept on getting larger and larger. People had come and go to this dance crew and we will miss every one of them. We got dancers that were from Epic Motion and HipTop Dance Cru. Now we got dancers from different schools and communities. We have members that came from different background, personalities, age, talents; but the one thing we got in common is the passion to dance. The amazing thing about us, is that we are all self-taught with no professional dancer teaching us. Dancing became a passion for us as time went on. Unique Movement is constantly getting better. One of our principles is to encourage people to start dancing and to provide confidence to people that you can dance as long as you try. We have members that never danced before but decided to cause we gave the support and help.
