UNITY Festival (Toronto)

Tomorrow, Thursday July 18th, marks the kickoff for the UNITY Festival occurring until July 21st in Toronto. UNITY Charity began when founder Michael Prosserman aka “Bboy Piecez” found his passion for break dancing at a young age and decided to share his form positive self-expression with other young people undergoing all kinds of challenges, much like his own personal experience of dealing with a schizophrenic mother.
UNITY Charity engages and empowers youth to be role models and leaders in their communities. UNITY engages youth 10 to 18 by implementing school and community programs helping youth positively express their stress and develop skills for success. UNITY empowers youth to make better choices as leaders, mentors and positive community role models leading to more productive citizens, safer schools, and healthier communities.
If you want to get involved or just enjoy the festival, there are a number of events happening all week. Free Your Sound: 2 vs 2 Beatboxing Battle happens tomorrow at The (Virgin Mobile) Mod Club and features beatboxing phenom Rahzel! The Breakdancing and All Styles Battle is going down Friday July 19, 2013 at The Phoenix. And Saturday, July 20, the city has a chance to check out Talib Kweli, RichKidd, 3x RedBull Thre3Style winner DJ Mensa and more at the FREE UNITY Concert at Dundas Square, while also enjoying b-boys and b-girls, beatboxers and graffiti artists.
