A program of Dancing in the Streets to celebrate New York City street culture, the group provides performance and professional development opportunities to street and subway dancers as a legal alternative to dancing in trains.

Led and managed by the dancers themselves, It's Showtime NYC! have created a number of pieces and commissioned major new works from international dance makers such as Anne Nguyen (Paris) and Faustin Linyekula (Congo).

The group was in residence at La Place - centre culturel hip-hop -  in Paris in November 2017, at Teatro Cecilia Becker in Rio de Janeiro in January 2018 with local Passinho dancers for Ocupacao Demistifique, at CND in Paris in June 2018 for Camping.
