B-Boys and Big Macs
This month, McDonald’s is offering you a side of break dancing with your McNuggets. Tomorrow, August 16, the fast food chain will host the first annual McDonald’s B-Boy Royale at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Brooklyn-bred breaker Jason Ng, aka “Chem”–two-time winner of the Kings of New York b-boy battle–will lead the panel of judges. First place receives $3,000 and second place $1,000. One lucky dance crew, chosen via an online video competition, will perform at the Royale alongside the eight dance crew competitors. Ticket proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities, New York Tri-State Area.
