All about New York City & the Hip Hop Culture

The Hip Hop Culture was born in the Bronx, in New York City (USA), dating back to 1973. Through the years, this culture has been spread all around the world and the rap has become one of the biggest music market world wide.

Thousands of young people today are rapping, dancing or doing music on the 5 continents. In this Thematic travel we offer the chance to learn more about the History of this movement, understand the life of the first Hip Hop pioneers and get updated with the new trends.

Thematics will give you the chance to discover the whole history of the movement and its influence all around the world. We will also meet different artists and important personalities of Hip Hop culture.

  3. DAY 2 Discover New York City and the History of the HIP HOP Culture

    New York City is a mix of old fashioned neighbourhoods and new amazing constructions. We’ll make you discover different parts of the city. The Hip Hop movement can only be understood by hearing the pioneers talking about it and THEMATICS will make you meet a few people who started this culture. All the guests will spend some time with us and answer any of your questions. Remember this Meet & Greet on Historical Site’s visit is an exclusive THEMATICS experience. The second night in New York City is a must and there is always a show or party to go.

  4. DAY 3 Experience Dance Class and the NYC Shopping

    The pleasure of dancing in New York City goes deeper than just moving your body and watching the teacher. New York has the most incredible dance studios in many different parts of the city, such as an unbelievable venue like on the 20th Floor of a huge building or in an old warehouse… Dancing is part of a NYC’s journey.
    You can’t walk on the streets without discovering the many shops and companies selling the new trends. So, be sure we’ll also have time to go to the most attractive spots for shopping and THEMATICS will also help you finding the best business place.

  5. DAY 4 Celebrate the Hip Hop Culture

    When THEMATICS goes to New York City, it’s also to celebrate culture. The period of our trips is always based on special events like the Hip Hop/Zulu Nation Anniversary, the Rock Steady Crew Anniversary or the Freestyle Session. We take a full day to participate to those events and meet many people from all around the world who also came for the same purpose. Those events never happen without their Famous After-Party.
    We want you to embrace the culture by taking part of any event which gives Hip Hop its full meaning and remind you the power of an international movement such as this one.

  6. DAY 5 The Bridge, Dowtown Manhattan & Special Event

    New York City is made of different boroughs and it’s a must to visit or even pass those 5 boroughs to understand the different atmosphere of the city. The Brooklyn Bridge is a beautiful example of what New York can offer you. A nice walk above the water to discover another part of the town and enjoy the creativity of Brooklyn. Downtown Manhattan has also so much to offer for the pleasure of your eyes.
    On this specific day, we’ll take part in the live concert organized in honour of the History of the Hip Hop Culture. The meeting with the Stars, the Pioneers, the Host or even many international heads is also a way for THEMATICS to give you some more.

  7. DAY 6 Shopping Day in NYC & Dance

    After a few days of visits, knowledge and information, the team of THEMATICS will be happy to show you the best spots to do your shopping and bring back the best souvenirs. We’ll also give you the opportunity to have another Dance Class in the Evening to feel the “Flavour” of the city that never sleeps.

  8. LAST DAY Goodbye New York

    After a pleasant morning, guests will check out of the hotel and will have the time to do their last tour in the city and buy their last “souvenir”. The guests will be transferred for departure flights at one of the International Airport (JFK, Newark …) always assisted by THEMATICS.
