The Get Down Gang was formed in early 2010 in Pittsburgh, PA, though about half of its members are from other cities. GDG is a street dance/hip hop elements crew consisting primarily of bboys/girls, with a few poppers and Djs. GDG has represented across the world in battles and cyphers, while also doing many performances and shows here in PA. Each individual member of GDG brings a different experience and history to the crew. Many of the members practice multiple dance forms such as locking and house. GDG consist of bboys Stealth-1, KDZ, D-Smiles, BDC, Warren, Prabu, and bgirl Teena Marie; poppers Mr. Street, Pyurtek, and Limz; and Dj Selecta and musical artist Gene Stovall.
Each week a different member of the crew teaches class at the Alloy Studios. Come on down for this beginner-friendly, high-energy hour of dancing! Whether learning to pop or perfecting your bboy/girl moves, you’ll leave with a smile on your face. The crew members join in, and all the moves are broken down, explained, and built upon.
Classes are at 5:30 pm on Thursdays, and cost $15. Or, buy a 6-class card for $75 and come back a few weeks in a row! All classes are held at The Alloy Studios, located at 5530 Penn Avenue.
