A Hip-Hop Music Video Birthday

Do you have a music lover on your hands? Is your birthday kiddo a dancer? The Evolution of Hip Hop’s 90-minute birthday party lets your kid star in her very own music video. Kids create a graffiti banner, decorate the space and learn a hip-hop routine from a professional choreographer in a large dance studio smack in the middle of NYC. Even better, the whole day gets filmed, so kids get to take home their own music video to remember their special day.  Cake, juice boxes and gift bags are all part of the fun. Packages are for kids ages 10 and older and start at $350 for a group of 15.
