The Hiplet Ballerinas, a performance group based out of the Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center, will perform at the Amoss Center on January 29 at 7 PM.
Hiplet™ fuses classical pointe technique with African, Latin, Hip-Hop and urban dance styles that are rooted in communities of color. It was specifically designed to make ballet accessible to all, by mixing it with current popular songs that will be familiar to audiences who don’t normally attend ballet performances.
Performances may incorporate the rhythms of African drums with Tchaikovsky, arabesques and beat-boxing or even Tango en pointe – all while showcasing Hiplet’s trademark sass, hip movements, and struts against popular music that audiences will recognize from Black Violin to Beyoncé and Prince.
Partnerships with Mercedes Benz, New York and Paris Fashion Week, Versace, and Old Navy have culminated in an incredible worldwide demand for Hiplet’s live shows.
