    Our dance class marathon has deep roots. Join us November 18th.

    Stay tuned for full class schedule and how to register!

    Now for the history lesson:
    Dance marathons are events in which people dance or walk to music for an extended period of time. Dance marathons, endurance movement contests, and derbies can be traced back to London in 1364. They started as dance contests in the 1920s and developed into entertainment events during the Great Depression in the 1930s.[1] Before the development of “reality shows”, dance marathons blurred the line between theatre and reality. Also known as endurance contests, dance marathons attracted people to compete as a way to achieve fame or win monetary prizes.

    January 10-20: Better Get Hit in Your Soul (High Performance Rodeo) – DJD Company
    TIME JANUARY 10 – 20, 2019
    LOCATION The DJD Dance Centre Theatre
    EVENT DETAILS

    Dances inspired by the music, life and times of Charles Mingus
    As a part of the High Performance Rodeo

    In 2013 DJD premiered a piece about the wild short life of Charles Mingus—a virtuoso bass player, accomplished pianist, bandleader and composer. Known as the ‘Angry Man of Jazz’ Mingus was a brilliant, mercurial and bodacious character. Back by popular demand, Better Get Hit in Your Soul gives audiences an ear and eye into the music of one of the most important figures in 20th century American music. Join us as we explore his music and some of the lighter and darker sides of his dramatic life.

    CREATED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY KIMBERLEY COOPER

    DANCED BY THE DJD COMPANY 

    FEATURING LIVE AND RECORDED MUSIC BY CHARLES MINGUS 

    MUSIC DIRECTION BY RUBIM DE TOLEDO
