Event description
Honoring connection - to oneself, others, music and movement - through 'staged' works inspired by jazz and American social dance ideas.

About this Event

Rhythmically Speaking is a dance company on a mission to spark vibrancy and connectedness through engagement with staged works inspired by jazz and American social dance ideas. We are moved by and wish to share with you the ways these modes of creative expression connect us to the moment, ourselves and others, music and movement during a time in which the human need for connection has been so illuminated. While we usually create human connection through live workshops and performances, our difficult but necessary decision to postpone our twelfth annual August show (The Cohort 2020) to May 20-22, 2021 has challenged us to connect in a new way: with a virtual event we've aptly titled The Cohort: From Home!

The Cohort: From Home will stream live via Zoom August 14, one of the nights The Cohort 2020 was supposed to play (8/13-8/15) at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis. The event, running from 7:30-9:00pm, will offer sneak peeks of the choreography that will be featured on the show we're now calling The Cohort 20/21 in May 2021, live improvisations by RS dancers, and other good stuff, all coming to you from the homes of our artists. Stick around afterward for a Happy Hour with them!

Your Eventbrite reservation guarantees you'll have one of 100 total Zoom spots available for the live show. If you cannot make the live event (or it sells out!), video of it will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel for a full week after the event. A donation of $20-$24 per person watching is suggested, and can be made at our GiveMN page. Your donation/s of what a ticket to our live show this August would have cost will help ensure the vibrant, unique programming of our small but significant nonprofit arts organization will again make it to stage and studio where it thrives. As an organization built around dance forms with African and Latin diasporic roots and branches, anti-racism and intersectional justice efforts must also be central in our work, which is why we will proudly donate 10% of the proceeds from this event to the American Civil Liberties Union.
