Shaping Sound, seen last summer in a 13-city tour, offers shows at Roseland Ballroom (239 West 52nd Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue) at noon, 4 PM and 8:30 PM.
The creation of Shaping Sound was chronicled on the television show "All the Right Moves" on Oxygen, which brought viewers inside the lives of four of the most sought-after dancers in the industry. Shaping Sound is a collaboration of these artists and visual musicians who dreamed about creating opportunities for contemporary performers.
Dancers Wall, Nick Lazzarini, Teddy Forance and Kyle Robinson lead the company again as choreographers. They are joined by returning members Joey Arrigo, Chantel Aguirre, Channing Cooke, Jaimie Goodwin, Kayla Kalbfleisch and Chelsea Thedinga as well as new company members Allison Holker, Melanie Moore, Ben Susak and Lee Gumbs.
Shaping Sound's movement style, according to press notes, "provides audiences access to and an understanding of contemporary dance through its unique fusion of jazz, modern, ballet, and explosive hip-hop choreography. The integration of traditional technique alongside cutting-edge dance styles brings an unparalleled entertainment value to ensemble performances. With a dynamic mix of rhythm, emotion, and athleticism, audiences can expect original choreography and freestyle movements that challenges the art form."
Shaping Sound is presented by Break The Floor Productions, LLC. For more information and tickets, visit ShapingSoundCo.com.
