SOLE Defined puts an exciting twist on percussive dance by turning their bodies into human drums. In one word, SOLE Defined creates a “Percussical,” an innovative twist on the traditional musical with its integration of percussive dance and multi-media with acting, singing. Each show is a power-packed performance to create a free flowing conversation through music and movement.
Quoted by The Washington Post for performing “the coolest number of the night with its high-stepping and toe tapping blend of style,” SOLE Defined has performed in distinguished venues both nationally and internationally including: The Children’s World Festival in Italy, The Kennedy Center, Jacobs Pillow, The Shakespeare Theater, The Smithsonian, International Cajon Festival and DancEncore International Dance Festival. Over the last five years, SOLE Defined has premiered four new shows, Black Amer-I-Can (2013), The Experiment (2014), Phenix (2015) and Frequency (2016).
“SOLE Defined brings energy, story, and artistry to every show they perform. Percussive dance at its best!” (Samantha Pollack, Washington Performing Arts Society)
