There are many instances during my travels that I am totally blown away by the people I come in contact with. This was one such instance. I have seen many top class dance performances on TV and on the internet, but this street hip hop dance performance has to be right at the top in terms of flexibility, totally rad moves and amazing body strength. It has to be one of the top street performances that I have seen in my travels. You should watch the video first and then read the paragraph below the video where I give details about these street artists.
I saw this performance at the battery park, a popular zone in downtown New York city. This area which has the local ferries, the popular tourist ferry to the Statue of Liberty and a memorial for the marines who died while serving their country attracts a lot of locals and tourists alike. Basically, it is a great platform if you wish to show your talent. These street artists use this area to showcase their talent and also to make some money for themselves. They definitely are great artists, but in addition, they are great performers too. They egg the crowd to join in and finally pull in some members from the crowd (I got pulled in too as you would have realized at the end of the video) to perform a super high and long jump over them. Unfortunately, I could not see the jump as I had to keep my head down to facilitate the jump. But, I totally loved their performance. Their energy was so infectious that it lasted me the next couple of days while I was exploring the rest of NYC.
