From May 2-4 and 9-11, 2019, Harlem Stage’s signature dance series E-Moves celebrates its 20th anniversary. Throughout its history, E- Moves has commissioned, presented and nurtured choreographers of color across the spectrum of contemporary dance idioms to create new work. In celebration of this anniversary, Harlem Stage will present 6 nights of dance featuring 2 commissioned artists presenting new works. In addition to the 2 new works, each night will feature additional choreographers and a pop-up performance by up-and-coming choreographers.

For the 20th anniversary season, the cogent power of Hip-Hop dance is uplifted to transport the crowd and push the boundaries of movement. Born out of social dance in urban community park cyphers and basement ballrooms and now seen across the globe on esteemed stages and concert halls, Hip-Hop dance is a prayer and a roar.

Two commissioned choreographers, FLUXX and Omari Mizrahi/ Les Ballet Afrik will present new works. E-Moves choreographers also include It’s Showtime NYC!, Joseph Webb and Barédu Ahmed aka Long Arms (L.A.) and pop-up performances curated by Adesola Osakalumi, including works from Sun Kim, Cein Lockefeller, Soraya Lundy and TweetBoogie.
