Holla Jazz

Choreographer(s): Natasha Powell

directed by:
Natasha Powell, Gerald Heslop

Holla Jazz presents FLOOR'D - A propulsive performance of dance, live music, and raw energy, all in the spirit of jazz. FLOOR'D draws inspiration from Katrina Hazard-Gordon’s renowned book, Jookin: The Rise of Social Dance Formations in African-American Culture. The performers showcase the dynamics and interactions of dancing bodies inspired by the arena of jook houses, and how their bodies compose jazz and blues music. Jazz. Moves. Grooves. Bliss.

Through FLOOR'D, Holla Jazz seeks to showcase vernacular jazz dance as an innovative, important, and necessary vehicle for social expression.
