Singing in the Rain Part 2

17 Feb

After the end of the planned Singing in the Rain event some of the dancers who took part in the event stuck around and decided to dance to music they played on a boombox. These young men are a part of the Salem Cypher Connection which is a break dancing club that is trying to bring awareness of the art in hip hop. Kind of cool right?

We were able to get up to the edges of the dance floor and watch. My kids enjoyed this a lot. I enjoyed trying to capture just what it was that I wanted to capture now that there was a smaller crowd and I could place myself better.
