Welcome to the temple of the arts for the communion of dance, music, culture.
URBANITE Dance Showcase will premiere at the Krannert Center Amphitheatre, which has design resemblance to the Greek Theatre of Dionysus, a temple of the arts hosting some of the first festivals of music and dance. Fitting for URBANITE, which will showcase 15+ dance groups performing primarily hip-hop choreography with additional styles featured from Latin to contemporary dance, all brought together with DJ sets and special guests. The show’s experience combines all elements of the culture to create an electric event that is both potent enough for die-hard dance fans and accessible enough for the casual admirer.
URBANITE is an international dance showcase and workshop series that is focused on dancer enrichment versus competition. Founded in 1998 in Champaign-Urbana, the experience has grown to 40+ showcases and has landed in eight US cities and three international stops. URBANITE bridges the gap between the worlds of choreography and freestyle dance, street dance and academia, dancer and fan, while connecting people to the culturally rich dance scene through events with elevated production.
