Companhia Urbana de Dança from Rio de Janeiro blends hip-hop, urban, and contemporary dance.
The eight versatile male dancers of Companhia Urbana de Dança, plus one female dancer, bring their experiences of growing up in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas (shanty towns) and suburbs to vivid life through their unique fusion of hip hop, urban and contemporary dance filtered through an Afro-Brazilian lens. The company’s volcanic performances have electrified audiences around the world with their creativity and intense, genuine, beautifully expressive movement.
