dance Immersion 25th Anniversary Celebration presenting BBOYIZM
Music Creates Opportunity explores how music is a critical link between dancers. In coming together, dancers realize personal expression, individualized interpretation, and explore their own inner music. Their environment becomes a theatre of meeting – sometimes harmonious and gentle; sometimes antagonistic and in conflict; always transformative.
The show features traditional street dances including Rocking and B-boying, as well as newer forms such as House Dancing, Hustle, and – rarely seen on North American stages – Pantsula, a street dance from Soweto, South Africa. It also introduces the innovative concept of Rhythmic Contact as Crazy Smooth and his dancers mix traditional forms of dance contact with music and rhythmic patterns, much like tap dancers, always within the context of street dance.
