bboyism 2"Dance to express! Not to impress."
Crazy Smooth

In Music Creates Opportunity, Crazy Smooth and his Bboyizm dance company continue to explore themes of personal expression through authentic street dance, and to push the art form at its edges. While Bboyizm's first stage piece, IZM, challenged audiences' expectations of both street dance and the stage, Music Creates Opportunity considers the intersection of rhythm, expression, and community in the making of music and dance.

Music is featured as the critical link between dancers -- dancers who may not speak the same language but who can find language together through the art form. In coming together, dancers realize personal expression, individualized interpretation, and explore their own inner music. Their environment becomes a theatre of meeting -- sometimes harmonious and gentle; sometimes antagonistic and in conflict; always transformative.

Audiences will witness music as a universal language that offers a multitude of possibilities for expression -- whether the music is an external force or created by the dancers themselves. They will also witness the innovative concept of Rhythmic Contact as Crazy Smooth and his dancers mix traditional forms of contact dance with music and rhythmic patterns, always within the context of street dance.

Music Creates Opportunity features traditional street dances including Rocking, B-boying, House Dancing and Pantsula, a street dance from Soweto, South Africa. As always, Bboyizm delivers precise and mastered technique; explosive movement; synchronicity and individualism together; and a festive and communicative spirit of movement, music, and life.
