The Wondertwins "To Hip-Hop with Love" Encore Performance
Back by popular demand, The Wondertwins, (Billy and Bobby McClain) return to The Dance Hall for an encore performance of "To Hip-Hop, with Love."  This is the 3rd appearance at The Dance Hall by the award-winning duo.  Six-time winners of Showtime at The Apollo Theater, The Wondertwins have appeared with Maurice Hines' Club Harlem  and toured internationally with Bobby Brown's 'Don't Be Cruel' in the UK, and Purple Rain's Apollonia's 'Since I Fell For You' tour in Singapore.

With the technical facility of hip hop, the sophistication of the glory days of the Cotton Club, the flash of Rat Pack era Las Vegas, and elements of vaudeville, robot, tap, and mime, The Wondertwins create a distinctive style all their own.

Former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre executive director Judith Jamison has praised The Wondertwins as "absolutely beautiful, strong, powerful, and electricmade for Broadway" and Maurice Hines noted that the identical twins "dance in the same spirit as the great brothers of dance before them."

"To Hip-Hop, with Love" is made up of three separate pieces: "Broadway to Hip-Hop," "Sounds of Movement," and "L.OV.E." With an eclectic soundtrack of music ranging from legendary rappers Busta Rhymes and KRS One, to the classic voice of Sammy Davis Jr., and even poetry from Maya Angelou, "To Hip-Hop, with Love" offers a kaleidoscopic view of African-American entertainment traditions.

Boston natives Billy and Bobby McClain have worked for 20 years as teachers in Boston Public schools, and spend their summers as directors of Project RISE, an educational summer program for inner-city students in Braintree, MA. They are also award-winning natural bodybuilder competitors, and were high school all-star basketball players, recruited by many Division I schools.

This program is supported by The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
