"In the Hip Hop culture you have the cypher, which is the open circle where people come to share their creative enery. It is a safe space where we can lovingly challenge each other to keep pushing towards even greater manifestations of our creative selves. East New York in Motion works to do the same as it is not just a performance but it is a sharing and celebration of cultures, ideas and beliefs." - Lakai Worrell, Co-Founder/Co-Artistic Director, Purelements
