On April 23rd 2020, New York City's only large-scale

non-competitive partner dancing program for schoolchildren, released a powerful parody in response to

 the COVID-19 crisis: the "MACORONARENA."


Inspired by the famous "macarena" line dance from the ‘90s. It has been reimagined — lyrically, musically and choreographically — by BBX Founder/Artistic Director Sidney "Dr. Dance" Grant as a dynamic way to remind people to continue social distancing and use PPE as restrictions ease. Written by Mr. Grant and scored by Elvis Sibeko in Cape Town, South Africa, it has truly been an unfolding success story throughout the past year.

To celebrate the tremendous impact that the Macoronarena has had on our community, BBX hosted a

YouTube Live event on April 23rd, 2021- featuring a

variety of Macoronarena performances & remarks,

hosted by our very own Dr. Dance!
