Description

Inspired by vernacular jazz and swing-era dances of the 1920s -1950s, Syncopated City Dance Company presents choreography that captures the excitement of improvisation in partnered dancing and solo movement. We use Lindy hop and American vernacular jazz dances in a unique way to tell stories by combining core elements of partnering and improvisation along with other dance styles. Syncopated City retains the traditions of jazz dancing and music as a uniquely American form, and highlights their relevancy in today's modern world. Classics like the Charleston, romantic movie-musical numbers, and high-flying Lindy hop routines are juxtaposed against pieces tinged with hip-hop flavor, electro-swing beats, and cool jazz. http://www.syncopatedcity.org http://www.facebook.com/syncopatedcity info@syncopatedcity.org Video Editing: Sandy Chase/Fluid Film
