Samantha GironCounterPULSE and Dancers' Group present

Dance Discourse Project #15: Street Dance 


CounterPULSE and Dancers’ Group are proud to present Dance Discourse Project #15:  Street Dance. In Dance Discourse Project #15:  Street Dance, moderator Samantha Giron will talk with panelists Teela Shine Ross and Power Surge (Sergio Suarez) and explore different facets of street dance including: the diaspora of American vernacular dance, the convergence of street and contemporary forms, street dance and social action, and identities in hip hop.  They will look at street dance both as a dance discipline and as a variety of underground cultural movements. They will discuss b boy, house, and dub-step, for example, as unsanctioned social movements that revolved around specific music and dance sensibilities, as well as certain “tipping points” in the history of the street dance movement. They will discuss the evolution of street dances from public spaces like clubs, warehouses, and street corners, to dance studios, and ask, “If it is learned in a studio or academic environment, is it still street?” They will look at the origin of the b boy movement and how territorial tension and gang violence transformed into battles, crews, and cyphers. Each of the panelists is an active educator in a variety of communities, and they will discuss hip hop dance education as a form of social action.
