Rennie Harris RHAW Promo 2012

The winner of numerous awards, grants and fellowships, Lorenzo "Rennie" Harris is recognized worldwide as an innovative choreographer. A critic for The Dance Enthusiast writes that Harris' "nuanced and thoughtful choreography displays athletic bravura, but ... is not dominated by tricks. He staggers lines and alternates facings to create a full-bodied stage effect." His company, RHAW, is composed of some of the best and brightest young dancers on the professional scene. Through Harris' choreography, they explore the electrifying movement vocabulary of street dance and bring the artistry of hip-hop culture to contemporary audiences by making it accessible, inspiring and fun.

"Love American Style!" is a new full-length work that features classic rock music. As part of the project, four talented dancers - three of whom are FSU students - from the Frostburg area will also perform with the dancers from RHAW. Henry Newby, Amy Milligan, Leah Becker and Autumn Hudson auditioned in February and were chosen to dance onstage with the professional company.
