Dimensional Dance presents Ballet to Breakdancing for the spring 2020. Please contact Ruth Lewis for further details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ballet to Breakdancing celebrates the lives of three fierce women. Fierce Like Frida is a fun but also poignant work with ballet dancer Matisse as painter Frida Kahlo and breakdancer Savage Henry as Diego Rivera. Our newest piece Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris: Whole Souled Women is illustrates the story of Crandall and Harris. Crandall was a Connecticut Quaker and social justice figure who taught woman of color in the 1830’s. Harris was the brave daughter of a free black man of Norwich, CT who asked Prudence for “a little more learning.” They never imagined the repercussion and emotions their actions stirred up in their quiet town of Canterbury, CT. We will be creating the piece in February and March of 2020. Check our our Facebook and Instagram posts in February and March for photos and video of the choreographic process.
