Red Bull Music Academy's Bounce Ballroom Sweats It Out in Brooklyn

Last night Red Bull Music Academy kicked off it's New York residency with Bounce Ballroom at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, the first of a series of musical collaborations and shows that are scheduled to take place daily across the city through the month of May. The night hosted four stages with each devoted to a different style of dance as conducted by a DJ who represented the scene; bruk up/flexing via Bobby Konders, voguing/ballroom with Mike Q, housing/waacking with Todd Terry, and Jersey Club by way of DJ Sliink. A spotlight illuminated each crew's stage as it was their turn to to sweat it out. (Meanwhile, the floor between the stages hosted over a thousand people who danced alongside those on stage, cheering on especially difficult moves.) We danced too, and took some photos along the way. Enjoy!
