Bboyizm dance company

The Harbour Highlights series presents Canada’s premiere street dance company Bboyizm with their new show, The Evolution of B-Boying, at Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on February 17.

B-boying, born in the early 1970’s, is a dance form that now has a significant international following and reputation. In addition to its roots in funk music and African American culture (contemporary Black history), the dynamic acrobatic aspects of B-boying (Breaking) make it one of the most unique dances in the world.

The show takes the audience from the 70s through the 80s and into the 90s with dramatic costume and music changes, building up to the dance form as it is practiced today.

Dancer-choreographer Yvon Soglo (B-boy Crazy Smooth) brings together some of the best street dancers in Canada to present an interactive show that will amaze young audiences and adults alike, while educating them on the evolution of the dance.
