Kicking off a week of hip-hop and street dance presentations, this all-female hip-hop crew performs Dance Within Your Dance, created by choreographer and director Tatiana Desardouin. This invigorating work illustrates how dancers influence each other’s style within the hip-hop and house community, combining themes of connection and transformation with individual groove. Originally from Geneva, Switzerland and now based on the east coast of the U.S., Desardouin’s first influences were Afro-Haïtian dance and dancehall, and she now specializes in hip-hop and house dance. She was a member of Geneva’s very first hip-hop dance company and originally founded Passion Fruit in Geneva before moving to the U.S. In addition to her own company, Desardouin dances with Rennie Harris Puremovement.
Opening for Passion Fruit is The Funk Box Studio, the only breakdance studio of the Berkshires. The company helps to develop self-confidence, presentation, teamwork, and social skills for youth. In classes, children learn the fundamentals of breakdancing—everything from Top Rock, Go Downs, Footwork, Power, Musicality, and Style—in a safe and energetic environment. The Funk Box Studio also performed at this year’s Community Day.
