About the Event

Back by popular demand… Musicians, bring your instruments! Dancers, be ready to move!

Join NCCAkron and BRKFST Dance Company for Cypher Classic – a workshop between dancers and musicians that encourages real-time collaboration and emphasizes the creative and spontaneous nature of their relationship. Through guided activities, participants will gain awareness of each individual's aesthetic as they rely on their technique, composition, respective vocabularies, and improvisation.

BRKFST Dance Company (Saint Paul, MN) seeks to create intellectually rigorous, physically demanding works of art through abstraction, breaking and contemporary dance vernacular. Exploring original modes of artistic expression is continuously pursued. BRKFST’s egalitarian and choreographic collaboration is rooted in the Hip Hop adage, "Each One Teach One". Regardless of class, race, experience, age or gender, everyone remains both teacher and student. BRKFST's lineage stems from breaking and hip hop culture: earning respect from battles and embodying inclusivity by passing down their knowledge to the new generation. The lived experiences of this collective who identify as working class, queer and BIPOC, inform their compositions. brkfstdance.com

Ideas in Motion is made possible by the support of Peg’s Foundation and The University of Akron Foundation’s Mary Schiller Myers Lecture Series in the Arts. NCCAkron is grateful to Stephen E. Myers, trustee of the University of Akron Foundation and the Myers Foundation and son of Mary Schiller Myers, for his support.
