The world of hip-hop dance culture collides with the bygone age of chivalry when modern-day b-boys and freestyle dancers meet knights in armor. Discover the unexpected parallels—and see what it’s really like to make some moves in all that chainmail, leather, and metal—in a series of thrilling dance battles featuring the fierce artists of It’s Showtime NYC! from the South Bronx’s Dancing in the Streets urban dance organization.

Eats & Treats: Inside the museum, the American Wing Cafe has soups, salads, sandwiches and a gorgeous view of Central Park. 'the cafeteria' in the basement is less scenic but has more selection - pasta, sushi, hot entrees, a frozen yogurt sundae bar and kids' meals that come in cardboard taxis. The Roof Garden has some snacks (and you can bring your own and nosh with a view). Or head to Shake Shack (86th between Lexington & Third) or the chill Pizza Beach (81st & Third). Pick up one of the city's best black-and-white cookies at William Greenberg (1100 Madison between 82nd & 83rd).
