The Hip Hop ConnXion (HHC) is globally known and respected as one of the top hip hop dance companies in the USA. The HHC DOWNTOWN branch was originally formed in February, 2007 in a collaboration with two companies, Pure Renditionz & The Collective along with open auditions. The company was put on sabbatical in April 2017. HHC Downtown was reinstated in August 2017 and merged with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) based dance company called Primo. The company is currently called Hip Hop ConnXion Primo (HHC Primo or HHC Downtown).
