The Joel Hall Dancers, based in Chicago, will be holding master classes, a concert and an inspiring lecture by Joel Hall himself on Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday Feb. 8, 2014 at Warsaw Performing Arts Center. The PAC is proud to bring such a cultural and unique event into our community. Joel Hall has quite a story that will motive and stimulate all walks of life along with dancers and non-dancers.
The Joel Hall Dancers express contemporary urban life through dance while educating, entertaining, and inspiring their audience. The signature dance style of the Joel Hall Dancers incorporates ballet, jazz, modern, funk, and “street dance” using contemporary jazz and house music to create an innovative and continuously evolving dance style that is appealing, relevant, and approachable for those frequently underserved by the arts. Both the Joel Hall Dancers and its audience exhibit a rare diversified spectrum of cultural, ethnic, racial and socio-economic backgrounds.
The Joel Hall Dancers maintain a citywide, national, and international reputation not only for their diversity and innovation but also for their substantive sociological content and engaging aesthetic style. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Joel Hall, the Joel Hall Dancers have carried their unique yet universally accessible voice to venues that span the world.
