Planned in collaboration with The Era Footwork Crew and other OTC partners, The Footwork Workshop and panel discussion will allow our broader community to experience and engage with different elements of our work. The Footwork Workshop will cover the basics of Footwork, its connection to the music, and the underground battles scene. Learn from the best as they teach you Erks, Skates, Dribbles, Ghosts—and how to form combinations from these basic moves to create your own style. Class is taught by Jamal “Litebulb" Oliver, Sterling “Steelo” Lofton, Jemal “P-Top” De La Cruz, Brandon “Chief Manny” Calhoun, Elisha "Eleelee" Chandler, Diamond "Queen Diamond" Hardiman. A panel discussion will conclude the evening with members of Open the Circle and The Era Footwork Crew, sitting down to discuss the future of IN THE WURKZ and other working projects.
