WTPunk, provides thousands of students around the globe an opportunity to convene for Florida’s first and only international dance festival dedicated to the preservation of 60s 70s and 80s underground music and dance cultures. This historical three day Pose | Funk | Revive Festival is headlined by some of the street dance communities most iconic forces and pioneers such as PUNKING’s last living original Viktor Manoel, and the international father of the iconic House of Ninja, Archie Burnett.
WTPunk, is a rare and bona fide resource for education and preservation of the origins of these dance styles— how their done, and how to teach them. Our guest teachers and performers are pioneers of their craft. WTP for many, serves as once-in-a-lifetime access to these dance icons, to learn from, and express their personal growth.
