It is not every day that my trip to Washington Square Park turns into a front row seat to a hip-hop street performance. A spontaneous show from the Tic & Tac Entertainment crew, started off with a small crowd, and quickly united a park full of strangers.
It was amazing to see randomly selected spectators willingly take part in the show, and happily let a strangers use them as a props. The Tic & Tac performers selected a group to line them up and perform acrobatic flips over them. Luckily they are professionals and extremely entertaining.
My lazy stroll through the park was transformed into an exciting evening, filled with laughter and amusement as I watched these masters of aerobics, break dance and incorporate a comedic act into the show. My worries and responsibilities were momentarily paused. I am in awe at how performers are able to turn the passion for what they do into something others love and admire as well, and that in itself is worth stopping for a moment to watch.
If you find yourself in the Greenwich Village area, take a stroll over to Washington Square Park as well, if not just for the beauty and history of it, but you might just get to see a great show!
