The Dryden Entertainment Series is pleased to offer something a little different, April 3, welcoming dance troupe Gadfly to the stage.
Showtime is 7:30 at The Centre
The group will also be doing outreach sessions in local schools during their stay.
Gadfly is the brainchild of Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Portillo, a creative duet originally from Montreal and now based in Toronto. Initially, these two maverick choreographers had for vision to see Urban Dance genres completed with real human qualities, and some flavor added to Contemporary dance. From there, it is from the need to express themselves without the constraints of commercial demands and to finally put urban dances in the forefront that other established dancers decided to collaborate.
As a result, in 2008, Canada’s first contemporary urban dance ensemble was created. Merging art with entertainment, they bring on stage a unique energy and their works breathe through that spontaneity found only in the urban dance culture.
