Next Step Project: Social Animals

2018 - Right Here 2 (Choreo-Perf - Bell).jpg

Part performance, part participation, this unique event invites you to both witness and experience the electricity of dancing and music-making bodies creating art together in the moment.


Dancers:

  • Ozzy Dris (Social Dance - House + Hip-Hop Styles)

  • Maurice Fields (Social Dance - Swing)

  • Erinn Liebhard (Concert Dance - Jazz + Modern)

  • Crissy Tolson (Concert Dance - Jazz + Modern)

Musicians:

  • Bob DeBoer (trumpet)

  • Steven Hobert (piano)

  • Reid Kennedy (drums)

  • Megan Mahoney (bass)

Social Animals brings together concert and social dancers, and musicians of various instrumentations and backgrounds, to cross-train and improvise together in performance. Held at the Icehouse rather than a traditional theater and featuring a dance floor open to all after the Saturday show, Social Animals seeks to gnaw at the gap between ‘dance you do (social) and dance you view (staged).’ The connections between social and staged dance ideas in America are dynamic, highlighting how cultural ideas and the people that practice them can thrive because of both their similarities and differences: come see this unfold through movement and music. This event has been made possible in part by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s Next Step grant, funded by the Legacy Amendment the voters of Minnesota made law in 2008.
