Atlas, Peformring, Arts Center, H, Street, NW, Alana, Hill

DCypher Dance presents Access Granted as part of INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. (Alana Hill)

From Cecile Oreste of danceDC. You can follow her on Twitter @dance_DC or email her at [email protected].

INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival celebrates art as an inspiration for conversation and connection among artists and audiences of all ages, races, cultures and art forms. This year, the festival returns for 12 days of performances starting February 23 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street NE.

In addition to featuring groups from Philadelphia, Baltimore and beyond, many of the performing artists have ties to the Borderstan area, including local singer Tom Goss, the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra and the Source Festival. Others are based just outside the District, such as Joy of Motion Dance Center’s resident adult hip hop company DCypher Dance, which rehearses at the studio’s location in Bethesda, Maryland. The company presents Access Granted as part of the festival on Friday, March 2 at 9:30 pm.

According to DCypher Dance company director Malaika Scott, “what makes DCypher unique is our ability to perform a variety of styles within hip hop as well as the other dance genres that some of the company members are skilled in. This means that in our shows you won’t just see all hip hop but you’ll see some jazz, tap and possibly modern too. Many companies have a distinct style that sticks with them and audiences expect to see, but with DCypher, we’re unpredictable. You won’t know what you’re going to get until we hit the stage!”

In addition to sharing their own style of hip hop dance, DCypher Dance will present choreography from Detroit native Gary Beauford and New York based choreographer Jason Anderson. Guest artists Vizion Performance Team of Howard University and Phunktions of the University of Maryland College Park will also take the stage, and audience members will get to join the fun at an after show dance party with DCypher members and DJ RBI. For more information about INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival, visit intersectionsdc.

Disclosure: Oreste is on the staff of Joy of Motion Dance Center.
