Come See Our Hip-Hop Show

Come See Our Hip-Hop Show

Hip-Hop “crew” group routines, professional solos and improv battles— see it all at our debut Hip-Hop show this spring!

Join us upstairs at the Ruba Club in Northern Liberties for this incredible celebration of live hip-hop featuring Philly Dance Fitness students and staff, professional local hip-hop dancers and surprise guest performances!


  • Philly Dance Fitness student crews under the direction of Ricky “Glytch” Evans, Jody Thigpen and Brittany Almquist
  • Improv dance-offs
  • A locking solo by our very own Ricky Evans, who took first place in a locking battle at an international hip-hop competition last year. He’s made numerous appearances on international stages and even national television, and performs regularly with his crew, the Hood Lockers.
  • A semi-freestyle piece by Phil Cuttino Jr., a performer and choreographer who has toured throughout the United States as well as internationally. Locally, he energizes crowds performing with the Gungle Brothers, a company he founded with fellow dancer Bryant Lee.
  • Special guest appearances by students from Movemakers Philly.
  • A group routine featuring Philly Dance Fitness instructors
  • And more!
