Classical Breakdance Performances

Anna Holmstrom and the Flying Steps Dance to Music by Bach

— October 24, 2014 — Art & Design
In an epic performance run last week, dance crew Flying Steps wowed crowds in Toronto at Red Bull's Flying Bach event. Classical music and breakdance choreography came together at the famous Massey Hall where the world breakdancing champions performed in what is being called "the ultimate clash of cultures."

While mixing classical and hiphop is not necessarily a new concept (please see most mainstream dance movies), the Flying Steps did it in a series of eight Red Bull Flying Back performances for a 65 minute long live showcase. After spending three days in Toronto, the show is moving to Montreal at Theatre Maisonneuve from October 23rd to 26th, 2014.

In the show, seven breakdancers along with Swedish contemporary dancer Anna Holmstrom perform to Johann Sebastian Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier, with Christoph Hagel as Music Director.
Trend Themes
1. Classical-hip Hop Fusion - There is an opportunity for dance crews to mix classical and hip hop music in their performances, creating a unique and captivating experience.
2. Live Performances - The popularity of live performances continues to grow, creating opportunities for dance crews to showcase their skills and attract a larger audience.
3. Cultural Collaborations - By fusing different cultures and art forms, dance crews can create new and innovative performances that appeal to a wider audience.
Industry Implications
1. Performing Arts - The performing arts industry can benefit from integrating classical and hip hop music into their shows to attract younger and more diverse audiences.
2. Event Planning - Event planners can capitalize on the popularity of live performances and cultural collaborations by organizing events that showcase unique and innovative performances.
3. Music Production - Music producers can explore new opportunities by collaborating with dance crews to create soundtracks that mix classical and hip hop music.
