All It Gives

Showcasing one of Toronto’s best up and coming Hip-hop dancers, All It Gives follows the story of Kosi Eze, a Nigerian immigrant who moved to Canada when she was fourteen. Her transition to the country brought culture shock, loneliness and loss of identity. She was immediately hooked by the vibrant Hip-hop scene in Toronto and Mississauga. After meeting key members of the dance community, Marcelino “FrostFlow” DaCosta, Mariano “Glizzi” Abarca and Caroline “Lady C” Fraser, she was able to meet even more new people, share perspectives, and excel as a dancer in the Toronto community and beyond. From dancing in the hallways at her high school, to winning battles across the globe, Kosi’s story of growth is a glowing example of how the power of hip-hop can inspire, uplift and support anyone who needs it and wants to discover it.
