Ballet, Meet B-Boy

Do you feel like you finally have a couple dance moves perfected, so that when you find yourself out at a club you might not die of embarrassment? Before you feel too proud, you should know that the all-male Brazilian dance troupe, Companhia Urbana de Danca, is in town to make people feel bad about their dance moves. They have your Harlem Shuffle beat. The eight men who make up that company hail from Rio de Janeiro and have perfected their blend of tricky hip hop and thoughtful contemporary dance. Artistic Director Sonia Destri Lie uses this unique style of dance in her newest program, Id: Entidades and Na Pista, to celebrate the group's Brazilian roots. Think ballet meets b-boying. Think about how there will be a lot of attractive men spinning on their heads. It's a dream come true.
