StiggityStackz Worldwideis Boston’s homefor historically-rootedfreestyle dance.

Freestyle dance is a powerful black cultural art form—a dynamic evolution of movements forged by our culture for self-expression and community cohesion. SSW paves the way for artists of all ages and backgrounds to forge connections with their body, movement, and rhythm. These fundamental bonds serve as the foundation for expressing personal stories, building confidence, discovering flow, and fostering community. Through dance coaching, freestyle dance festivals, media production, and entrepreneurial workshops, SSW is dedicated to offering the space and resources needed to ignite individual and community transformation. Our goal is to establish Boston as a thriving hub for innovation within the freestyle dance scene.

It St(ARTS) in the Park | Dance Court Series

ISITP is a park activation series by StiggityStackz Worldwide in partnership with The City of Boston and DS4SI, re-imagines Boston's public open spaces through community engagement. This initiative features free dance classes, live music, catering, youth activity stations, and screenings of the "For The City - Boston Dance" docuseries. Extending from the Dance Court initiative, it aims to redesign public infrastructure to support dance similarly to sports, fostering community impact. For The City also serves as a community storytelling and archive initiative, creatively capturing the testimonies of key voices in Boston's unique freestyle dance history across generations. After highlighting Boston Krump in last year's documentary, season 2 will celebrate and spotlight Boston's dance elders, continuing the vibrant tradition of dance and storytelling in the city.
