NYC Subway Dance and Acrobatics
By Danielle Hall
It could happen anywhere. The subway doors close and immediately the show begins. You watch with enthusiasm and curiosity.
My thoughts: who are these kids? Hey, they’re pretty good. This moment feels like it came right out of Beat Street. Where did they learn how to do these moves? Where do they practice? Can I be your manager? Seriously, if you can master b-boy dancing and acrobatics on a fast-moving train, with limited space, you’re truly one of a kind.
