The attendance was great and the feedback was also very insightful. We were embraced at the concert for our dance moves and our warrior essence. Big Shout to all the sisters who blessed the microphone that evening!

Momma’s Hip-hop Kitchen was fun as the ‘Ladies of the Flow’- Full Circle female dance project repped Salsa, House, and Hip-hop! Big shout to all the females who repped on stage including I-Shea from West Massachusetts who did her thing as a latina MC. Thank you to Lah Tere and Kathleen Adams who organized this their 4th annual women’s history month concert at Hostos Community College.
Ladies Get Down was held at the Ailey Extension and the concert was well  attended as were the workshops. The females-in-street-dance discussion named after our film ‘All The Ladies Say’ was also a very thoughtful and honest sharing of experiences by choreographers —-Robin Dunn, Rhapsody James, Olissa and Cecily moderated by Rokafella on the 26th. 
Thank you to Retumba for creating a space for Rokafella, Jaws and Beastie to perform their dance along with traditional Puerto Rican drums and dance at Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance in the Bronx.

About

“All The Ladies Say” is a film that highlights the lives of six iconic female street dancers from San Jose, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, who have carved a niche in the physically challenging, male dominated breakdance world. Discussions about motherhood, sexual tension, femininity versus masculinity and the rap industry/mainstream images are a few of the themes explored by the documentary’s main characters. International dancers not only make appearances but also add their two cents about life as a B Girl in the Hip-hop world.
