BRKFST Dance Company and Kaleena Miller Dance partner for a performance that merges the dynamic art forms of breaking and tap dance. With rhythm and movement as their foundation, BRKFST and KMD celebrate the roots and technique of their respective movement styles while pushing them to new heights in this electrifying collaboration.
About BRKFST Dance Company
BRKFST Dance Company, formerly known as In New Company, was founded in 2014 and is comprised of six dynamic performers, each with distinct training backgrounds, aesthetics and specialties. As individuals, each member has been dancing in their respective forms for over a decade. As a collective, BRKFST members converge to create collaborative dance works by teasing the edges of breakin’, martial arts, burlesque, and contemporary dance vernacular, bringing the many voices and backgrounds of the dancers into a new movement expression. At times intensely physical and chaotic, at others precise and contemplative, BRKFST Dance Company is both intellectually and emotionally stimulating in producing work that is re-contextualizing the vocabulary of movement.
