Chosen Dance Company returns to Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center with another exciting performance. Their Fall show was so popular and compelling, it is easy to see why the group is eager to return and Uptown! is glad to have them back. Evvolution is the story of Hip Hop dance in America 2.0, an upgrade to their last performance. It is family friendly, intended to entertain and enlighten audiences of all ages with three shows: February 2nd at 7:30pm and February 3rd at 2:00pm and 7:30pm.
Clyde Evans, Jr., Founder and Artistic Director of Chosen Dance says, “If you think you know all about Hip Hop, you need to see this show! It’s informative and interactive.” Underlying a fast moving, professional dance production, it also encourages young people especially to “make good choices, understand their value as a human being and the importance of being true to themselves even in adverse circumstances.” This, without sounding like a motivational speaker, but through authenticity and the art of dance. As a guiding principle, Chosen Dance Company produces and participates in Hip Hop projects that are positive, constructive and uplifting, free of violence and bad language.
In Evvolution Chosen Dance presents the dancing that set off a trend for youth in America and ended up influencing the world. The show features some of the styles audiences are more familiar with: Lockin’, Poppin’, Breakin’ and Hip Hop, and introduces some less known or familiar forms: Waacking, Krumpin’, Lite Feet and House. Following the Hip Hop phenomenon, Evvolution examines the history of a movement that defined this social dance era. Audiences have the opportunity to step back in time from the late 60’s & 70’, thru the 80’s, 90’s and beyond as dancers spin, slide, pop and glide on anything and everything to present the story of Hip Hop dance in America. Chosen Dance brings the best of Hip Hop to promote a culture of Peace, Unity, Love and having fun.
