The Kitchen's 1981-1982 dance season opened with Street Dance NY to LA, a two-part presentation that included Graffiti Rock (October 2-3) and Toni Basil Presents a Decade of Los Angeles Street Dance (October 22-24). Graffiti Rock kicked things off with a “breaking” contest/concert between Rock Steady Crew and Swift Kids. The multimedia event also included “talk-sings play-by-play commentary” by Fab 5 Freddy and an “improvised score” by DJ Spy, in addition to an exhibition of work by the city's leading graffiti artists.
