NYC’s pioneering b-boys and b-girls say “bem-vindos” to the Brazilian dancers from Passinho at this dance party for all. Behind the Groove’s DJ KS*360 (aka Kwikstep of Full Circle Productions) conjures the heyday of New York’s block parties, spinning classic hip-hop, funk, salsa, and house. He’s joined for a guest set by Rio’s baile funk pioneer DJ Sany Pitbull and guest dancers including Akim Funk Buddha and the Experimental Dance Akademy and other stars of New York’s dance community.

A Batalha do Passinho is sponsored by the Secretaria de Estado de Cultura do Rio de Janeiro.

Presented in association with the Consulate General of Brazil in New York.

Presented in association with Brasil Summerfest.
