I was really excited to see the @hashtagphotographymagazine contest because I feel like it's a great opportunity to share a recent portrait series of Groove Generation, an all female hip hop dance team based in Oakland, CA. Groove Generation is a new team in the Bay Area dance community (they're in the middle of their second season), and their strengths include getting nasty on stage and smashing the patriarchy. This diverse group of babes rehearses together, parties together, and are quick to dive in and help a teammate when she's having a hard time finding a job or going through a rough breakup. Their love for each other shows in their performances - catch them shakin' their asses at the San Francisco Pride Festival.
