Rooted: Hip Hop Choreographers' Evening

Daily from June 15-16
7 p.m.

This project, which won a 2014 Sage Award for Outstanding Dance Performance, continues on in celebration of the foundations of hip-hop. Created and curated by Maia Maiden, this year’s dynamic event showcases the diverse talents of hip-hop performers in the Twin Cities, and also includes special guests from South Africa and New York. Fleet of foot, with raps and rhymes that help drive the rhythms, the show celebrates the cultural roots of the dance form. It’s also the only choreographers’ evening focused exclusively on dance under the hip-hop umbrella. Don’t delay: These shows sell out fast.
