"Pops and locks set to Bach" - NY Times

With clever, risk-taking choreography set to a mix of classical music selections like Claire de Lune, Firebird, Swan Lake, and Flight of the Bumblebee - this contemporary, hip hop dance troupe fuses the intensity and beauty of the two art forms, creating something entirely fresh and new.
