THEY REMINISCE

T

hey Reminisce brings together some of Utah’s most talented Choreographers & Dancers.  We took our choreographers and presented them with a question.  If you could choose your top dancers for a piece, what could you create?  The goal was to give them the tools they needed to produce choreo with no compromises.  We believed that by providing the best talent possible that our choreographers would create incredible and unique content.

It’s 2016 and we are growing!  It’s time to take the show on the road and explore new places.  Provo we’re looking at you!  They Reminisce is coming to Provo in March for one night, so don’t miss out.  Follow the creation and growth of Hip Hop through 3 Eras.  Learn about the Music, Dances and Culture that define each era and contribute to the growth of Hip Hop.  While you’re watching that we’ll be hard at work on a BRAND NEW SHOW.  This completly new production will debut in SLC in July.  New story, new characters but the same They REM experience.  Learn about the story of Hip Hop as you follow a crew of dancers though the 80’s and 90’s eras.

 ERA 1 | Creation

Hip Hop’s roots lie in the boroughs of New York. In the late 60’s Jamaican immigrant Clive Campbell moved to New York City and would soon become DJ Kool Herc. In 1973 Herc began hosting parties at 1520 Sedgwick Ave in the Bronx. These parties would become the birthplace of Hip Hop and Hip Hop culture. Herc’s way of cutting and mixing the “break” of a record allowed for the creation of the first Hip Hop dance, BBOYING. Bboys or “Break Boys” and girls would dance to the breaks of a record.

ERA 2 | The Golden Era

By the 1990’s Hip Hop had grown and expanded. The MC was seeing success in the music industry, Graffiti writers were getting up all over the world and Bboying was joined by Popping, House, and New Jack. Fueled by groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Eric B. & Rakim, Pete Rock & CL Smooth and others, Hip Hop and its dances filled neighborhoods all over the world.

 

Our First Ever Show In Provo

Come see us March 19th!

 ERA 3 | The Modern Era

Today, the success of shows like ABDC, SYTYCD and the resurgence of dance themed movies have provided more opportunities for Hip Hop dancers than ever before. Hip Hop choreo as well as dances like Krumping continue to progress and grow along with the ever changing face of Hip Hop. For better or for worse, Hip Hop will continue to grow and evolve and it’s dances will always represent the current state of Hip Hop culture
