Things To Do

The Dance Floor: Future Skool with Les Ballet Afrik

Join the Universal Hip Hop Museum in collaboration with Hip Hop Education Center and Works & Process at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Hit The Dance Floor on Friday nights at the Atrium, featuring hits from the most-loved musical genres of today.

The Universal Hip Hop Museum, scheduled to open a permanent home in the Bronx in 2024, strives to celebrate, preserve, and educate the public on the local and global phenomenon of hip hop. The Atrium will provide an Upper West Side stage for UHHM in 2022 with a series of shows incorporating three of the key elements of hip hop: rapping, DJing, and dancing. Future Skool opens the night with a cypher of emergent artists and next generation hip hop innovators followed by a performance of the vogue, hip hop, and Afrobeat-fusion dance work New York Is Burning, commissioned by the Guggenheim’s Works & Process. This work was created by Ballroom choreographer and star of HBO’s Legendary Omari Wiles for his company Les Ballet Afrik. After the show, make your way to the dance floor for an unforgettable hip hop jam.


This event is approximately two hours.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating and entry are first-come, first-served; the line will form at the Atrium’s entrance on Broadway, between 62nd and 63rd Street.
