Labeled an artistic phenomenon, FLY crosses street dance with classical choreographic principles. FLY is a 10-member all-male contemporary dance company from Houston known for high energy break dancing, hip hop, contemporary and acrobatic dance. Their technique is hip-hop—very creative, gymnastic, and highly masculine. Concerts are clean-cut, wholesome artistry designed to cross all audience boundaries—young and old, men and women, sophisticated and unsophisticated. Described as “one big love fest,” FLY dances to music as diverse as Stravinski, Debussy, Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson, Nat King Cole, Three Dog Night, Isaac Hayes, Escala, Vivaldi, Wes Montgomery, Dave Barbour, Funky Lowlives, Rahzel, and James Brown. www.flydancecompany.com
