iSpy, Bonfire, Gummy, Colorz

We have a good, even mix of aggressive and kicked back choreo. We want to promote individual growth as much as possible for all the dancers and teach elements that we both like to incorporate into our freestyles but haven’t seen in past DT pieces.

Tomohiro Maeda Breaking All

Please attend the Hip Hop audition

15-20 dancers

It’s Just Begun (Jimmy Castor Bunch), Yellow Sunshine (Yellow Sunshine), Love the Life You Live (Black Heat)

Breaking is one of the origin of hip hop culture but not many people are exposed to it. Also, people often see bboys/girls as 'powermovers’ even though many breakers dance. I want to bring old school breaking to MIT’s hip hop culture and DT is the best place to start.

If I ain’t got you by Alicia keys

“My main inspiration for the dance is loss, in whatever form that might be in your life. I started dancing after a breakup, so my main inspiration comes from the loss of a relationship, but any type of loss translates well. There will be feelz

At the same time, this dance aims to push dancers out of the ““comfort zone”“ of DT, both in terms of types of movement I’ll explore (e.g. floorwork and jumps) and what dance consists of outside of learning choreography. I want to help people have a better idea of how to train and practice outside of just workshops and classes.”

#mannie returns from the depths of alumnihood to bring what we have learned from real life & the greater boston dance community back to dt! this dance is kinda about finding beauty in simple things and finding it in yourself. mostly trying to create something that feels good to dance & feels good to watch. attention to detail & musicality are key!!!

Bird Flu- M.I.A.

Exploring the more… uhhhh…. unique types of contemp. Specifically, illness-related dance as a new trend! But actually. Very quirky, Mackenzie is part choreographing so expect some jazziness, Katrina is also part choreographing so expect some slow parts/turns (well as slow/turney as you can get to this “music”). We really want it to be fun and high energy but in a low (actually the most high key) key way, ya know?

Camilo Espinosa, Aya Suzuki Fusion (Hip Hop + Contemporary) Intermediate

Please attend the Contemporary audition

25-30 dancers

Cane Shuga – Glass Animals, Without the Lights – Elliot Moss, maybe some spoken word as a transition?

“The three biggest focuses on my dance are musicality, dynamics, and performance. My vision is of two sets of people (think wearing two contrasting costumes) and a lot of the choreo will be interactive between the two sets. The story is first in Without the Lights you are lost and hurt but more than anything you feel apathetic and defeated. This could be because of something like depression, an abusive relationship, etc represented by one of the sets of people (if you watch the video of the song youll see). Then there might be a spoken word section as a transition in which you get the resolve and strength to overcome whatever is haunting you. And in cane shuga, the mood is more of a fight: you are angry and desperately want to rid yorself of whatever was causing the pain.

This dance is meant to be a strong mold of what contempy moves and hip hop moves feel right to me in the songs, and should be challenging to anyone hopefully regardless of their level.

Barcelona by Ed Sheeran

I want everything to be just plain and simple and happy. This is a dance that doesn’t have too much meaning behind it, but just something that everyone can get into and feel great. It’s a dance that exudes “come on and dance with me” (also a lyric) energy. Spontaneity, restlessness, butterflies, and just a teensy bit of romance. There will also be lots of partnering.

Slowly (Classical Spanish Translation) by 2Cellos

AMC Theaters presents: “Mashing The Most Streamed Song Ever With The Lovely Style of Ballet Is Our Number One Passion”. Although this is to a fun song, we are sticking to classical ballet steps. Previous ballet or technical experience is preferred, but this will not be on pointe. The dance, however, will be on point XD XP __

Patricia Lu Tap All

Please attend EITHER the Hip Hop OR the Contemporary audition and meet with Patricia immediately following

20-25 dancers

Dancin Fool, a tap classic

We’re gonna be tapping to one of the most widely used songs for tap but that’s because the song is actually so amazing and fun. The music makes me think of broadway esque tap, so expect that: some classic tap steps, jazz hands/other arms, facials, etc. I want it to be really high energy, crazy, and fun (and I want people who can really show that through their facial expressions). Format will probably be different sections for different levels (beg/int/adv) and maybe some things all together. We’re all fools, let’s dance :)
