You’ve heard of popping, locking, breaking and krumping. But do you know Poly-swag?
That’s just one of the “flavors” of dance that will be on display at the 17th annual Hip Hop International dance competition, which will be held in Phoenix for the second straight year. Poly-swag is the invention of New Zealand’s ReQuest Dance Crew, an all-female troupe that brings “Polynesian swag” to their choreography. They were winners in the adult division of the championships in 2010 and 2011.
This year’s event starts with American teams — junior, varsity, adult and “megacrews” — competing Aug. 3-5 at the Arizona Grand Resort, followed by the World Hip Hop Dance Championship, with the finals on Aug. 11 at Grand Canyon University Arena. It also includes “World Battles” with one-on-one showdowns in popping and locking.

The shuttles meet at a connector hub at Arizona Center, and you can also catch the shuttles at any of the stops along the routes including Phoenix Art Museum, CityScape, Oasis on Grand and Unexpected Gallery.
Havana Nights at The Scott feature classic movies from the early 20th century, when motion-picture film was in its prime and color was yet to be discovered. Sit back, sip on some of The Canal Club’s Signature Cocktails and enjoy our complimentary Mexican Street Popcorn.

On the heels of the #MeToo movement and in light of growing awareness of gender inequality in many contexts, including art museums, In the Company of Women will feature approximately 50 works in Phoenix Art Museum’s collection created exclusively by women. This exhibition invites visitors to see these iconic works in a new light, simultaneously questioning and transforming our perspective on what, and why, we consider great art.
