A Lady in Hip-Hop: A Musing on the Dance Scene

I realize that I’ve never introduced myself, despite the fact that I started at The 5th back in August. My name is Noelle Marie and I am a freestyle dancer repping Femme de la Funk, Homeland, and International House of Artistic Punking. I used to run my own blog titled “A Lady in Hip Hop,” in […]
