California’s Starchild Dance Takes 100 Years of Urban Dance to Montreal and New York Festival

- Starchild Dance reaches the midpoint of its highly praised summer season with performances and workshops at some of the most notable dance festivals across North America. Starchild Dance kick-started the summer teaching, performing and even battling at Seattle’s Camp Jitterbug, May 24- 25.

Then the dance duo, wowed opening weekend at the 37th Annual San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival.

 

“Tracy Bartlow and her partner Ray F. Davis dance the evolution of this indigenous American art across the country. They take with equal ease to the lindy, hip-hop, house dance and more recent choreographic genres such as get lite and cypher.” Rita Felciano for public media, KQED.

 

Starchild Dance now makes its international debut at Montreal Swing Riot, July 3-5, during the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the largest festival of its kind. As A Frankie Manning Lindy Hop Ambassador, Starchild Dance treats audiences to their acclaimed Hip Hop B-Love Workshop which weaves together Hip Hop, Jazz, and Lindy Hop for a comprehensive dance experience.

 

Starchild Dance rounds out July gracing stages throughout New York with its B-Love’s Hip Hop Jazzy Groove performance and youth workshops as part of City Park’s Foundation Summer Stage and Summer Stage Kids line up. (See guides for specific locations and dates.)
