Dance UP features six of the most promising and skilled dance makers in New England today, bringing some of the best hip-hop, tap, and contemporary dance to the stage. With the technical facility of hip hop, elements of vaudeville, robot, tap, and mime, The Wondertwins have created a distinctive style all their own for 37 years as pioneers of hip-hop/street dance. Boston-based tap dance company Subject:Matter presents new and cutting-edge tap dance work under the direction of Ian Berg. Originally from Chicago and now living in Salem, MA, James Morrow brings hip-hop culture to concert dance with his company james morrow/ The Movement. Compelling choreographer Kat Nasti utilizes the constantly changing and diverse artistic pool available in Boston for her Kat Nasti Dance. Doppelgänger Dance Collective (DDC), cofounded in 2015 by dancers Shura Baryshnikov and Danielle Davidson, creates original, contemporary choreographic work for duet performance. Young, talented choreographer Alexander Davis recently created his own company, Alexander Davis Dance (ADD), and is also a member of Boston’s own Urbanity Dance.
