Freestyle Dance Academy had the opportunity to put some smiles on the faces of the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, also known as “CHOP,” during their ‘Wayback Wednesday’ 2017 Summer Bash. Tony, Kyle, Anthony, Eric & Ricky went to spend the afternoon with the patients, and put on a few freestyle performances for the kids & their families. After watching the guys perform, some of the kids even got up to show off a few of their own moves!
Located on the outdoor garden CHOP has built for resident patients, the Summer Bash celebrated the coming of the summer season, and was a great time for the kids, their families and the hospital staff. The afternoon featured music, food, basketball & crafts. Some of the children even tried their hand at live DJing during the party. The dancers from Freestyle Dance Academy showed off a variety of hip-hop styles for the crowd, including b-boying (i.e. “breakdancing”), popping, locking and more. Complete with a beautiful day full of sunshine, the event was filled with fun & dance moves for all!
Freestyle Dance Academy was invited to perform by the Child Life department at CHOP, which provide care and support designed to meet the unique needs of children and families as they cope with illness, injury, treatment, hospitalization and the overall healthcare experience. They provide age-appropriate and therapeutic play, art therapy, music therapy, education, pet therapy, and so much more. Learn more here.
