Listing #: 564907379
The Hip Op-eration Crew: the world’s oldest hip hop dance group consists of 37 senior citizens aged 66 to 96 years old from Waiheke Island. The dance group want to travel to Las Vegas in August to do a tribute performance at the World Hip Hop Championships. To raise the money to get to the USA they are selling themselves.

The successful buyer will get exclusive sponsorship of the Crew, the opportunity to give them a hip hop make-over and brand them, use them for talent in television, print and radio advertising campaigns, have them perform at public or private functions and become part of the Crew by joining them on their trip to Las Vegas. They will also have the chance to be included in a feature documentary film currently in development that follows the adventures of the Crew.

We are open to any type of buyer or sponsor – including an overseas organisation that could benefit from having an association with a positive and inspirational international publicity platform. The buyer/sponsor of The Hip Op-eration Crew will also make the dreams of 37 people, who don’t have a second chance at this, come true.

The Crew members include Violet, a 96 year old in a wheelchair; four people who use other types of mobility aids (including a zimmer frame and walking sticks), 14 members in their 80s and early 90s, many people who are deaf, and one member who is legally blind. The average age is 76 and there are eight men and 29 women in the Crew - including a mother (96 years old) and son (69 years old) and his wife (69 years old).
