Young ambitious dancers discover and develop their talents at Crosstown. They work at the highest level with professional Korzo choreographers such as Samir Calixto and Shailesh Bahoran. In Troublemakers, Calixto combines the fresh, anarchistic energy of the dancers with the powerful drive of the surprisingly contemporary sounds of Mozart’s Symphony nr. 25. In Tribe the versatile hiphop dancer and choreographer Shailesh Bahoran, together with the dancers, explores the degree of influence of the outside world on their way of life. With b-boying, popping and locking, and a healthy dose of originality, they try to stay true to themselves and retain their authenticity.
