WHO WE ARE
The Flavor Continues (TFC) est. 2019, is the first community led non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving street and club dance in Greater Boston, Massachusetts, USA. It is spearheaded by members within the street and club dance community pursuing creating a sustainable foundation for the culture. The formation of this organization is in response to the never ending need to provide resources and uplift members of the marginalized communities by promoting social justice, employment, well-being, and education - all through the art forms of various street and club dances.
“The flavor continues” was first used as a moniker, eventually evolving into a statement representing the organization’s consistent dedication in providing for the community. Seeing value in the spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental blessings this culture brings to the world, TFC believes in returning the same gifts back to the culture by providing boundless opportunities, fighting for representation, and promoting unity. We center our values on authenticity, merit, integrity, collaboration, and preservation, and have a centralized goal in sharing the true meaning behind each art form with the general public.
Starting as an organization focused solely on curating dance events, TFC soon found themselves at the intersection of historical preservation, public health, education, and community preservation connecting. Now, TFC seeks to evolve the culture by continuing to serve through transformative and novel methods in its programming. In collaborative efforts to work alongside other organizations and individuals, The Flavor Continues strives to open up opportunities for fellow creatives to strengthen their connections with one another through various mediums and platforms, generating an ecosystem that fuels and bridges both the creative and professional landscape.
