The world-renowned Massive Monkees hip-hop dance group will also be performing. The Seattle-based Hip Hop B-Boy group has brought national and international attention to Washington with two-time world championships, TV appearances, global tours, and were directly involved in achieving breakdancing’s inclusion in the 2024 Olympics. They have been involved in countless creative projects ranging from documentaries such as “Souled Out,” “The Way of the B-Boy,” and other collaborations with the Seattle Super Sonics, X-Box, BIC, Microsoft Windows, MTV and more.
