More than a month after Superstorm Sandy battered the East Coast, its effects are still being felt in hard-hit communities like Far Rockaway, Queens and the Jersey Shore. The good news is that relief efforts don’t seem to be slacking, either.
Next Saturday, December 15, the Jam for Sandy at Seize the Dance gym in Capitol Heights, MD will provide an especially dance-friendly way to give back. Beginning at 4 pm, some of the East Coast’s best dancers will be duking it out in 1 on 1 All Style and 2 on 2 B-Boy battles. You can sign up to compete or just come to watch—either way, the $7 entry fee paid by each participant will go directly to New York Cares. Alternatively, you can bring two articles of warm clothing to donate and pay a reduced entry fee.
There’ll also be special exhibition battles, music spun by six DJs and food prepared by chef Bounme Phetdevone. Intrigued? Click here to find out more about the event.
