They will help us celebrate Community Day with two quick yet dramatic performances from 2:00-2:15 and then again from 4:00-4:20.
Conceived in 2007, RHAW is a youth organization driven by community outreach, education, and mentorship. Dr. Harris’ inspiration for this youth driven company comes from the overwhelming interest from teens and young adults to join his internationally renowned company Rennie Harris Puremovement. Ultimately RHAW is a training company that will teach its pre-professional dancers professionalism, production, Street Dance History, and techniques of Campbell Locking, Popping,m Boogaloo, B-boy/girl, House and Hip hop social dance. the abstract while pushing a dramatic aesthetic, RHAW will forge new paths for young hip hop hopefuls, and will present Hip hop in its “RHAW-est” forms.
