dance Immersion celebrates its 25th anniversary with an exciting showcase presentation featuring dance company Bboyizm in a full evening work, "Music Creates Opportunity." This Toronto premiere will take audiences on a journey through the intersections between rhythm, expression and community.
The show features traditional street dances including Rocking and B-boying, as well as newer forms such as House Dancing, Hustle, and – rarely seen on North American stages – Pantsula, a street dance from Soweto, South Africa. It also introduces the innovative concept of Rhythmic Contact as Crazy Smooth and his dancers mix traditional forms of dance contact with music and rhythmic patterns, much like tap dancers, always within the context of street dance.
Audiences will enjoy an evening of captivating performances that will leave with an overwhelming appreciation of artistic influences that touch the human spirit within ourselves and others.
