Before dance was identified as entertainment, it was believed to be useful only for stamping down dirt floors in barns and avoiding falling hail. Watch the modern meaning of rhythmic movement with today's GrouponLive deal: for $16, you get one ticket to see James Sewell Ballet’s production of Le Dance Off at On Stage at Kingsborough in Brooklyn on Saturday, December 3, at 8 p.m. (a $33 value, including all fees). The best available seating will be assigned to customers at the time of purchase.
Hailed as "one of American ballet's most inventive choreographers" by The New York Times, James Sewell leads a talented troupe of dancers into the Big Apple during his company's modernistic, humor-heavy show, Le Dance Off. A tongue-in-cheek jab at reality television's dance craze, Le Dance Off interlaces dazzling steps with satirical glimpses into the backstage world of competition, where melodramatic outbursts and arguments about whose mama can perform the best grand plié lob an endless barrage of laugh bombs toward the audience. An eclectic playlist that ranges from Bach to Lady Gaga fuels the roaring fire of revelry, which, along with its barbs, pays homage to the diverse spectrum of creativity currently inflaming the dance scene.
