Latin Hip Hop Dancers Perform at Johns Hopkins

New York City-based dance company Keep Rising to the Top will bring its eclectic mix of dancing styles to Baltimore at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 12, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Keep Rising to the Top blends ballet, tap, jazz, classical and modern dance with flavors of hip hop, breakdancing, African, reggae, salsa, merengue, cumbia, rumba and tango. The group's mission is to broaden the notion of what a dancer is and to promote the preservation of ethnic and cultural dances. Based in Spanish Harlem, Keep Rising to the Top provides a positive alternative to social and street pressures by providing dance classes and support programs in a non-discriminating atmosphere. Keep Rising to the Top also carries out its mission through its core-performance group, which fosters pre-professional dancers. The dance company caters to children and young adults of lower to middle income families in Latino communities of New York City, but has universal appeal with young-at-heart audiences. Information and photos available online at www.kr3ts.com/index1.htm.

This event is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 38th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. The event is co-sponsored by the university's Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the Center for Social Concern in celebration of CultureFest 2003. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
