Get ready to feel the rush of adrenaline as leading dancers invited from the NYC Club Scene and beyond compete for a cash grand prize in the Motion/Matter: All-Styles Dance Battle.

The champion will be determined by a panel of guest judges including Robin Dunn, Rennie Harris, Princess Lockerooo, Ken Swift, and Omari Wiles. MC Cebo leads the evening.
