Senior hip-hoppers want to visit the Bronx

A group of hip-hop dancers from New Zealand has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring the crew to the Bronx.



The youngest member is 68 years old. The oldest is 96. The group hopes to raise $40,000 to bring all of its members to New York.



The Hip Op-eration Crew consists of 22 men and women from a small island near New Zealand. 



They've performed at the dance championships in Las Vegas and Taiwan, but now say they want to come to the Bronx to pay homage to hip-hop's roots.
