ROOTED: Hip Hop Choreographers' Evening
June 9-11, 2016

Winner of the 2014 Sage Award for Outstanding Dance Performance, ROOTED is a celebration of the foundations of Hip Hop. The first and only choreographers’ evening focused exclusively on Hip Hop dance and its roots (African, Latin, Tap, Step, Breaking, Popping, Locking, Toprock, Waacking, House, Old School and New School), ROOTED is celebrating its fifth year.
Created and curated by Maia Maiden, this multifaceted show exhibits the skills and techniques of the finest choreographers in the Twin Cities. ROOTED is a high-energy performance where audience members can share space with Minnesota’s diverse hip hop community featuring old school favorites, up and coming talent, and the women of Hip Hop. ROOTED is the only show of its kind that embraces the history of Hip Hop culture and, for that reason, has sold out every year since its debut.

The Catalyst Series is a platform for transformative, socially engaged new work. Through performing, media, and visual arts, the Catalyst Series sparks lasting dialogue in provocative and visionary ways, showcasing work by today’s emerging and vangaurd artists. The series offers a pathway for traditionally underrepresented artists, emerging local changemakers, and projects that ignite innovation.
