We had an amazing opportunity this week to visit Streb Extreme Action Dance in Brooklyn and sit in on a rehearsal to observe the process of dance theater.
Founder Elizabeth Streb gave us a warm welcome and chatted about “Pop Action” her innovative dance vocabulary, which is a blend of dance, sports, gymnastics, the American circus and bodies taking flight. Later we actually got to see the “flying machine” in action!
Assistant Director Fabio Tavares da Silva and the whole Streb Company answered our questions about what it is like to be in this very physically challenging company and life as a professional dancer.
Keep a spot for us warm on the mat Streb! We will be back for a workshop and take flight ourselves later this year! Thanks for a very inspiring morning!
