PHILADELPHIA, PA – Roger Lee Dance’s spring concert “Take 2” runs March 8th through 10th with three performances at The Performance Garage in Philadelphia, PA. The performances combine contemporary jazz dance with soul music to create a memorable, uplifting, and entertaining experience for audiences of all ages.
Roger Lee Dance premieres four new dance works by founder, artistic director, and choreographer Roger Lee.
The concert opens with Take 2, an energetic piece featuring original music from resident beat maker Danny Horowitz. This is followed by Dear Chris, an emotional tribute for Roger Lee Dance’s late dancer and videographer Chris J. Brewer. The piece features original dance phrases, poetry, spoken word, and live singing by the full cast.
After a 10-minute intermission complete with concessions and show souvenirs, the night will continue with Heartstrings. The three-section piece explores the joy and excitement of new love, the frustration and boredom of love gone sour, and the major effort it takes to have a chance at romantic restoration. The concert ends with Snapshots, a black history month tribute commissioned by Ursinus College’s Office of Multicultural Services. This piece explores two snapshots within black history: segregation and the Civil Rights Movement.
