Rodney Strong Dance Series

Versa-Style Dance Company

Expect some high-energy, unadulterated hip hop movement that explores the depths of improvisational dance, when Versa-Style Dance Company brings its latest full-length work, FREE-Mind FREE-Style, to the LBC stage. Using street dance vernacular as vehicles of expression, including locking, popping, hip hop and krump, each show is a unique offering of freestyle in street dance, live on stage. Audiences will walk away with a visceral immersion into the Hip Hop dance culture.

The work dives into the concept of freedom from all angles: the personal, the political, the physical, and the spiritual. How do we experience freedom? What contains us, oppresses us, and what ultimately allows us to break free? “FREE-Mind, FREE-Style” explores these questions from both the evolutionary and ancestral lens, blending cutting-edge hip hop, popping, and krump movement with house dance that pays homage to the Afro-Latin roots of the Hip Hop dance culture, where they, as street dancers, ultimately draw their revolutionary power.

Danced to sonic remixes of hip hop, classical, and electronic music, the work pushes the dancers’ physical limits, and calls upon each artist in the diverse company to draw upon his and her own experience of freedom and the battle it takes or achieve it.
