Bboyizm Dance Company brings its show to Surrey Oct. 28.

Street dance takes the Surrey stage

Bboyizm performs Oct. 28 and aims to promote and preserve all street dance styles.

Crazy Smooth and the Bboyizm dancers bring street dance to a theatre setting as  Surrey Arts Centre presents Bboyizm: Music Creates Opportunity on Oct. 28 from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

In a spirited, all-ages hour of entertainment, the b-boys and b-girls hold nothing back, flinging themselves into the air, spinning, twisting, and flipping in a burst of physical expression. The dancing is jet-fuelled, skillful, and so hot it sizzles.

Hip hop and other street dance styles have come a long way from their beginnings in New York as an alternative to gun culture for African American youth, spreading their festive spirit of music and life across the world.

Choreographer-dancer Yvon Soglo (B-boy Crazy Smooth) is one of Canada’s top street dancers. Mostly self-taught, Smooth’s passion and respect for the history of the art form has led him to study with some of New York’s foremost street dancers. He has been an instructor for acrobats from Cirque du Soleil, performed at the Nancy Jazz Festival in France, and was awarded Most Valuable B-boy at the annual Kings of NY Competition in 2006.

Bboyizm Dance Company’s (www.bboyizm.ca) goal is to promote and preserve the foundation of all street dances.

Tickets for the Oct. 28 show are $12.50, including all fees. Phone 604-501-5566, check tickets.surrey.ca or visit the Surrey Arts Centre box office at 13750 88 Ave.
