Press: What Happens When You Bring Street Dance On Stage?

June 28, 2017

Four hip-hop artists, including our own faculty member D. Sabela Grimes, tackle the topic of bringing street dance to the stage.

On hip-hop’s impact on concert dance, Grimes says, “The movement vocabulary that’s been absorbed has expanded the lexicon of non–hip-hop dance forms. I think about how the moves in breaking, for example, have opened up a gateway for fresh ways to explore the floor and multiple surface areas of the dancer’s body.”
