OUR STORY Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival has been a driving force in the empowerment of girls & women in Hip-Hop. LOHHF began as a training ground for female Hip-Hop dancers looking for a different perspective of the dance. It quickly grew from a day of dance workshops to a week-long international festival including female DJs, Mcees, graffiti & visual artists from around the world. LOHHF has built an international tribe of girls and women supporting each other.
LADIES OF HIP-HOP WORLD In March of 2011, Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival went to Europe! In Partnership with Urban Arts & Culture of Austria, and theKosmosTheater, LOHHF debuted internationally in Vienna, Austria to three evenings of sold out shows, a jam packed panel discussion, and great workshops. It was a tremendous experience for the eight US instructors and performers, some traveling abroad for the first time ever. In the 10 days in Vienna LOHHF director, Michele Byrd-McPhee and dancers created a collaborative piece with Austrian artists.
Most recently the festival began a partnership with Los Angeles based Versa-Style Dance Company. After years of doing work in the Hip-Hop community, Jackie Lopez aka “MISS FUNK”, Co-Founder & Artistic Directorof VSD and Michele Byrd-McPhee, Founding Director of LOHHF teamed up for first LA edition of Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival. The two organizing giants presented a mini-version of the annual NYC festival. It was overwhelming success!
