Event Description:
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2019 - 7:30 P.M.

Direct from Chicago, Hiplet™ fuses Homer Bryant’s classical pointe technique with African, Latin, hip-hop, and urban dance styles rooted in communities of color. Its signature style has been specifically designed to make ballet accessible to all by mixing it with current popular songs that are familiar to audiences who don’t normally attend ballet performances.

Featuring 10 dancers, performances incorporate the rhythms of African drums with Tchaikovsky, arabesques, and beat-boxing or even Tango en pointe – all while showcasing Hiplet’s trademark sass, hip movements, and struts against popular music.


Free 30-minute special lecture precedes the performance at 6:30 p.m. in Babka Theatre. Free UD student admission made possible by UD SGA, UD Women in Aviation, African Student Association, and Black Student Union.
