Rennie Harris and his company members are well versed in the vernacular of Hip Hop, popping, locking, stepping, breaking, house, and other styles that have emerged from the African American and Latino communities of inner-city America. These masterclasses include exercises to develop muscle strength, flexibility, and stamina. The basic movement and techniques are defined, practiced, and developed into combinations. Hip Hop styles are explored as sources for inspiration and vocabulary for choreography. Also, the movement is technically tied to complex and often challenging, invigorating, and uplifting driving rhythms.
Space provided by Philadanco.
