The Dance Cartel's new dance experience OntheFloor returns this August after a sold-out run in June! The pilot project of The Dance Cartel, it's a fusion of the company's rigorous artistic approach with the vibrant social nature of dance. The premiere of The Dance Cartel's new repertory is supported by live musicians, video and DJ. Choreographer Ani Taj Niemann draws on rhythmic influences from her recent research trip to Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Points of departure include body rhythms like breathing or a heartbeat, to rhythms in speech and gesture, to the crucial place of rhythm in music itself from the baterias of Carnaval to the 808 in your favorite house and hip hop beats. Doors at 9, show at 10. Full bar and bar menu by The Breslin. Admission is $10, tickets available here: 18+.
