This intrepid bunch of dancer/choreographers is revitalizing jazz and rhythm-based dance in the Twin Cities and showing us just how broad-based these forms can be. The wildly eclectic program ranges from hip hop to '60s-influenced jazz to Afro-funk. Featured choreographers include Deborah Elias, Karla Grotting, Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner, Carrie Lande, Erinn Liebhard, Jennifer Mack, Whitney McClusky, J-Sun Noer/Dancin' Dave, and Joanne Spencer, an A list of local tappers, breakers, and jazzers. Each choreographer was also given the task of improvising to the same song by local band GST, who will play live at the performance. Take a sneak peek at the results on the Rhythmically Speaking website, rhythmicallyspeakingdance.org. (Image by Aleutian Photography)
