BOUNCE (article first published : 2005-04-30)

From July 4, Big Concerts is to host a major national tour of Bounce, the extraordinary new street dance sensation, which will include the Playhouse in Durban as well as the Feather Market in Port Elizabeth and Caesars in Johannesburg.

Bounce incorporates an exciting array of dance styles, combining Breaking and Popping with Swing, Tap and Boogaloo, in a unique production set to a pulsating soundtrack of music including Hip Hop, Jazz and Rap.

Station manager Lesley Ntloko, thrilled with their involvement, said “Metro FM is proud to be associated with this growing urban youth culture and further create a platform for youth to express themselves in an art form”.

The urban street has long been at the root of popular culture and Bounce takes this to the next level. The show pushes the boundaries of modern theatre and dance by celebrating the powerful vitality and influence of the street in a thrilling spectacle.

Bounce was formed in 1997, and has since enlisted the best international talent, whose skill, passion and raw energy bring the soul of the street to the stage. The street dance sensation has already played critically acclaimed and sell-out seasons in London and across Europe. The show premiered in Stockholm in March 2001 and broke all box-office records.

Bounce combines dance and driving rhythm in an unforgettable theatrical experience for anyone who has ever tapped their feet to a beat. Get your tickets now for the most diverse dip into dance culture you’ll ever experience!

The Playhouse season is from July 19 to 24, after seasons at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (July 4 to 9) and Feather Market Centre, Port Elizabeth (July 12 to 17). Bounce then moves to Caesars, Johannesburg (July 26 to August 10). Book at Computicket.
