Roger Lee Dance is back with a sneak peak of its second concert “Take 2.” The one-night-only sneak peak will take place on Friday, October 12 at The Performance Garage in Philadelphia, PA. The event combines contemporary jazz and hip-hop dance with soul and popular music to create a memorable, uplifting and entertaining experience for the whole family.
The Roger Lee Dance Fall Preview Show includes snippets of two new works and one audience favorite by company director and choreographer Roger Lee.
The night begins with the opening of Heartbeats, a three-part piece featuring two duets and a women’s section to soulful love classics. This fun continues with the debut of Take 2, a rhythmic group piece performed to the music of pop icon Janet Jackson. Closing out the show is the men’s section of last season’s thriller The Groove.
After graduating with a Master’s Degree in Arts Administration from Drexel University this past June, Roger Lee held auditions for the second season of his company. This resulted in the addition of five new performers including dancers Katie Greco, Michael Nguyen, Donielle Turner and Daron Stivender and singer Sasha Carvalho. Returning performers include dancers Chrysta Norelle Brown, Michael Melian-Velez and Marlene Post and singer/host Davis Jameson Howley. Roger Lee Dance is also proud to welcome back its Resident Beat Composer Danny Horowitz.
To help kick off season 2, the company had a high-fashion promo photo shoot with the talented Nathaniel Dodson of Endy Photography. They also launched new merchandise including a 2013 Calendar and the debut concert on DVD. Lastly, Roger Lee Dance has been hard at work preparing for its March 2013 concert series “Take 2.” The spring concert is dedicated to the company’s late videographer and dancer Chris J. Brewer.
The Roger Lee Dance Fall Preview Show takes place on Friday, October 12 from 8 pm to 9 pm at The Performance Garage, 1515 Brandywine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130. All tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or online at www.rogerleedance.com. For more information, please contact (215) 833-6961 or visit www.rogerleedance.com
