Apr 6: Urban Arts – The Throwdown Dance Convention

UrbanArts presents the ‘ThrowDown’ Dance Convention – a 1-day annual urban dance platform aimed at promoting the importance of accessible and inclusive dance programs, highlighting the importance of physical literacy, offering new and exciting opportunities for growth and recognition to young performers, and encouraging community engagement through the vehicle of creative movement. Our 2019 theme is ‘Healthy Living through Dance’.


Through our dance showcase & competition, workshops & masterclasses, artist chats, and awards, ThrowDown promotes the development of artistic and life skills for youth in a supportive community atmosphere. Because of the generous contributions from key partners and supporters, we are able to offer this dynamic dance platform 100% FREE for participants and attendees to experience.


Youth Assisting Youth – The Peer Project will be part of the festivities for the Throwdown Dance Convention so be sure to stop by our Booth located in the Marketplace to show your support as we provide information, gain awareness, outreach, recruit volunteers and celebrate our organizations success in the community.
