DCypher Dance in Ascension: Phase 5

Looking for a fun way to spend your Saturday night? Join Joy of Motion Dance Center’s resident adult hip hop company DCypher Dance as they celebrate their five year anniversary at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC on Saturday, July 9, 2011 at 8:00 PM. The hip hop concert titled Ascension: Phase 5 features choreography from DCypher Dance member Nikki Gambhir, as well as a host of talented artists including Porche Anthony of Beat Ya Feet Kings – a Washington based hip hop dance crew who competed on Season 4 of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew. Other guest choreographers include Chelsea Cooper, Jared Jenkins, Chris Law, Christina Nontanovan, Neil Schwartz and Kevin Simon. The show will also feature special guest performances from local talent.

Artistic Director Natasha Hawkins has been with DCypher Dance since the beginning and has seen it grow in a positive direction. She decided to name the show Ascension: Phase 5 not only to represent the five year anniversary, but also to speak to the rise of the company. “Words can’t express how far this company has grown in five years,” she said. “Phase 5 is meant to say that the company will continue to grow beyond these five years. Just one phase of many years to come.”

DCypher Dance’s performance of Ascension: Phase 5 will take place at the Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1333 H Street NE, Washington, DC. Showtime is 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 9, 2011. Adult tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Tickets for children, students and seniors are $15 in advance, $18 at the door. Purchase tickets online at www.atlasarts.org or call the Atlas Performing Arts Center box office at 202.399.7993. DCypher Dance is Joy of Motion Dance Center’s resident adult hip hop company.

Get ready for an evening of hip hop, full of powerful energy and excitement!
