reasonsLegacy is an ongoing work in progress that celebrates the cultural legacies of dance. The work contains reflections from our dancers as they explore and define their personal legacies, while exploring the dance lineage of NYC dances.
reasonsLegacy involves original music, art work, journaling & discussions inspired by Harlem’s heritage dance, Swing / Lindy Hop.
Reviews on reasonsLegacy:
“A mesh of jive, techno, and hip hop embraces the stage in reasonsLegacy … an amalgamation of waving, house dance and breaking in this light, playful remix.” – Dominique Robinson for JCE Magazine
“reasonsLegacy brought the new into the old with (its) lighthearted choreography that dug down into the roots of Jazz dance. (It) mashed elements of swing with hip hop and breakdancing had a reminiscent feeling of the happiness you feel when watching Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy.’ With breakout solos and spunky partnering it left one smiling from ear to ear.” – Ninoshka De Leon Gill for JCE Magazine
