The Gentlemen of Hip-Hop Coming to SWOSU
The Gentlemen of Hip-Hop, an all-male contemporary dance company from Houston (TX), will perform Thursday, February 2, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University as part of the university’s Panorama series.
Known for its high-energy performances with clever staging to a variety of music—including classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop, experimental, drumming and live sound effects—The Gentlemen of Hip-Hop (also known as FLY) will entertain at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the Weatherford campus.
Tickets are on sale and available at stubwire.com or in the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing office in Room 205 of the Administration Building. Advance tickets are $5 for SWOSU students/faculty/staff/emeriti and $10 for the general public. All tickets at the door are $20.
Labeled an artistic phenomenon, FLY crosses street dance with classical choreographic principles. Their technique is hip hop—very creative, gymnastic and highly masculine. FLY’s concerts are clean-cut, wholesome artistry designed to cross all audience boundaries—young and old, men and women, sophisticated and unsophisticated—with pieces combining styles and cultures to reflect contemporary Americana. FLY is currently collaborating with hip-hop icon Rennie Harris.
