Start It Up!

by Jeffrey Steele

“Start It Up!” is a high energy dance theater piece that weaves through moments at a house party. From the moment their feet first start moving to the last song the partygoers set the dance floor on fire. Tracking individuals, friends, and couples, the partygoers infectious energy keeps building emphasizing the importance of collective celebration. There’s a special energy at a party when just the right song drops. Everyone hits the dance floor, shouts into the air and hypes each other up to take it up just one more notch. This energy manifests through creativity, boldness, ingenuity, community, and resilience. This show will primarily feature hip hop and modern contemporary dance.
