When the music changes, so does the dance. – African proverb

Join Dance Repertory Theatre in a celebration of the influence of African American culture upon contemporary dance in the twenty-first century. Momentum features nationally renowned artists, including hip-hop choreographer Dr. Lorenzo “Rennie” Harris; vanguard emerging choreographer Abby Zbikowski; Adrienne Hurd, former dancer with the Judith Jamison Project; as well as one of the ensemble’s first tap performances, choreographed by co-artistic director Jeremy Arnold.

“America grew up with dance, and dance continues to be a barometer of life in America,” shares co-artistic director Charles O. Anderson. “From the street to the stage, dance in America captures everyday gestures, social dances, cultural retentions, social and political issues and spiritual principles. These sources – coupled with a spirit of independence, risk-taking, exploration and persistence – have helped to form what we know today as American contemporary dance.”

The performance is approximately three hours and includes one intermission.
