The summer of 2015 in partnership with the Brooklyn Bodega to celebrate our culture we gathered the next wave of young emerging dancers, deejays, emcees, sneaker heads and visual artist to convene under one building to propel the culture forward. In the nature of hip hop there is a competitive element to it, but at the end of the day it's all about the love for the culture. This exhibition represented the culture of Hip Hop in its rawest form, and it took place at one of the only festivals that still represents the raw essence of Hip-Hop, but on a bigger stage and platform, "The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival"! The exhibition took place July 10th at Littlefield NYC in Brooklyn.

Litefeet is a hip-hop dance style started in Harlem the term Ag voice of voice of Harlem. The style itself was created in 2005-2006 over the course of 10 years it has been built & shaped by various dancers. Which adventured into the Bronx then eventually all five NYC boroughs, Tri state areas, & now different countries such as Japan, Paris, Argentina, Russia & etc. Litefeet consist of different dance trends that blend together such as the chicken noodle soup,the harlem shake, tone wop, & the bad one but it's more than 20+ dance moves/trends in litefeet's catalog. One such unique thing about this style is that you can blend any dance style. Recently its been gaining a lot of attention by being represented on the NYC subway for "Showtime". .Many believe is the rebirth of hip hop culture not only from dance, but also from the music aspect of it has a boom bap feel but imagine it on steroids. Soon people will know the 10 year history behind litefeet, but it is hard to document everything while it is constantly evolving. Witness this evolution through these two crews on July 10th.
