Strike a Pose! It’s back by popular demand. Legendary!

From the legendary balls in New York during the 80’s emerged the dance style that slays. During the 2018 First Person Arts Festival, viral choreographer Kemar Jewel returns with the visionary storytelling dance piece Legendary. The 2017 Festival one-night-only performance was so fabulous that Kemar Jewel and the Xcel Dance Crew are back for a three night run at this year’s festival.

The performance on Thursday, Nov 17 will be followed by a talkback with Kemar Jewel and the Xcel Dance Crew. The performance on Friday, Nov 16 will be followed by a free Vogue Showcase Ball.

Happy Hour on the Fringe

Hear from the Assistant Director for Legendary, Tori Gillis, for a rundown of the voguers that we should be following, how she became involved in Legendary, and the difference between a ‘dip’ and a ‘shwack.’ **Hint: If you don’t want to be embarrassed at your next Ball, this episode is required listening.
