Have any extra cardboard lying around? Give a ring to the members of local hip-hop dance collective Dynamic Rockers a ring, since they're probably gonna need plenty Saturday's Street Culture Jam dance competition, which takes place at the Party Pit.
Breakdancers and b-boys will likely pull off all kinds of gravity-defying urban dance moves on the aforementioned packing material for cash and prizes at the event, so expect to see plenty of helicopters, flying lotuses, hip twists, and hanging airbabies.
In addition to a one-on-one popping and locking competition (winner takes home $200), the Street Culture Jam will feature an old fashioned "Breakin' Battle" where teams of three dancers square off against each other. Local b-boy superstars like House from Furious Styles Crew and Thorough from Soul Shifters will judge the competition and hand out a grand prize: A trip to New York City to compete in the B-Boy Massacre in May.
