Alaska Junior Theater presents Soul Street Dance Company’s Breakin’ Backwards on November 2, 2019 at 7:30pm in the Atwood Concert Hall.
Fusing hip-hop styles of breakin’, poppin’ and lockin’ with modern dance and a spark of theatrical flair, Soul Street Dance Company’s (Houston, Texas) comic delivery and sheer physicality are a hit with audiences of all ages. Their technical and artistic skills, stage presence and wit blow away the competition and allow them to push the performance envelope to amazing new heights, just like their impressive hip-hop acrobatics.
With Breakin’ Backwards, Soul Street’s dancers showcase impressive moves and choreography by incorporating different styles of street dance with traditional and classical styles of popular dance throughout the decades. Watch as they elevate and incorporate hip-hop elements including DJ, M.C., BBOY, GRAFFITI, Poppin’, Beat Boxing, Power Moves and Brazilian Capoeira.
Great dancing needs great music and be ready for a soundtrack of the ages including Vivaldi, Jimmie Thomas, Count Basie, Elvis Presley, Henry Mancini, Debussy, the Temptations, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith and more.
