The City University of New York has begun making space and resources available to dance artists throughout the five boroughs. This special initiative brings Gabriel “Kwikstep” Dionisio and Ana “Rokafella” Garcia, founders of Full Circle Souljahs, back to the Bronx stage on which, in 1999, breakdance pioneer Kwikstep proposed to his longtime colleague, iconic B-girl Rokafella. They’re presenting a one-night stand of Outside the Bachx, a Kennedy Center commission that remixes ballet and Bach with beatbox and classic hip-hop dance, deploying their eclectic, multi-ethnic ensemble of nine, including concert pianist Cristina Altamura, in a family-friendly offering.
