This was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Surprisingly, most of the male hip hop dancers were better than the girls! Aysha always does a good job with choreography and it was an entertaining show.

Description

Aysha Upchurch: Life, Rhythm, Move Project

Part of the Dance Place Hip Hop Festival

_

Retrofuturistic _is a play on time travel and science fiction, all while examining the theme of “men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” It is has all the fun, entertaining appeal of hip hop dance, but also raises some questions about what we are doing to our planet, environmentally and socially. The performance will feature students from the Dance Place Fall Hip Hop Repertory Class.

Life, Rhythm, Move Project (LRMP), an award-winning, critically acclaimed Washington, DC-based ensemble, combines Hip Hop and other dance forms with spoken word, to entertain and engage diverse audiences. Under the direction of Aysha Upchurch, LRMP fuses passion and education with artistry. The company’s body of work examines relevant social issues and dares the audience to laugh, cry and think. In this performance, the ensemble will present new works by Upchurch and guest choreographers.
