About

Next Generation (NXGN) Foundation for the Street and Club Dance Culture

 

Street dance culture is a form of expression that was born under oppression. It is a way for Black and Brown people to express themselves, to be heard, and to elevate out of difficult conditions. 

 

This culture can now be found everywhere across the globe.  We have seen that this culture, one of the major contributions to the world, can change lives. It can overcome cultural barriers and unite people as a universal language when it’s taught correctly. However, the BIPOC in our community continue to struggle with ongoing issues of appropriation, injustice and inequality.
 

Our goal is to establish a sustainable and independent economy for the community by offering a safe space for the community to express and preserve the culture.  We will name it the “Underground Spot (the Spot or US)".  

 

The Spot will have a theater as well as a performance/event space, and a school.  Professionals from the community will be the mentor, teacher, director, choreographer, developing talents and also the daily administrative staffs to create stable jobs for the community.  Participants will learn everything from the names of basic steps, all the way to creating full stage productions for street & club dance, movement codification, and also develop systems that are conducive to their types of movement expression. 

We have many initiatives and one of our main goals is to offer free classes and free after school education for those who can't afford it while providing stable jobs for qualified members of the street and club dance community as teachers and cultural advisors. This will help create the trisector of guest, student, teacher. we will do all this with the expressed intent of understand black and brown culture.

Next Generation Foundation has been helping the community to grow and thrive.
