About this commission
FlexNYC is a free, citywide residency program in dance activism for young people in collaboration with Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray and the D.R.E.A.M. Ring (Dance Rules Everything Around Me). Through Flexn, a form of street dance with roots in Jamaican Bruk Up, students explore social issues while developing their capacity to express themselves. Now in its third year, FlexNYC has expanded to all five boroughs, serving approximately 600 students. The Shed partners with public schools, New York City Housing Authority community centers, and Beacon youth programs to provide free FlexNYC after-school activities.
