Cypher Theory presents Battle of The Styles! A workshop and dance party highlighting four different types of social dances, featuring local dancers from the Locking, Waacking, House and Vogue communities.

Join us at MPavilion as four instructors lead beginner-friendly workshops on their respective styles. Follow along and try the dances out for yourself and between each mini-workshop, we’ll clear the dancefloor for you to showcase your new moves.

After the workshops, the dance instructors will go head to head in an epic exhibition battle with the loudest cheers from the audience deciding the winner!

Once you’re all warmed up, stick around for a party and put your new moves to good use as we boogie down for the remainder of the evening.
