Stackin' Stylez is a freestyle dance festival dedicated to preserving and promoting Boston's unique freestyle dance culture. We celebrate both our rich history and the evolving present. Integrating these forces invites every participant into a space of growth and transformation, while fostering in a vibrant new era for street style dance in Boston.


  • Growing generational gaps between dancers
  • A dying stagnant freestyle dance community in Boston
  • Misinformation and lack of historical context for the origins of black dance movements and culture
