Popping, rocking and battling at BATS!

In this week's installment of Dance Your Socks Off! We bring the house down with some mean funky Hip Hop and Dance Theatre.

After the sell out Fringe Festival season of Bent not Broken at BATS this year, opening tomorrow night is Why I Move a unique and rare personal exploration of rebuilding and re-learning when everything is removed and restricted. A dance theatre experience.

Harlem Shake? Crip walk? or maybe a little bit of a Cupid Shuffle? Hip Hop has never been so much fun. Opening this Wednesday Eye Of A Dancer from the Seek Dance Crew has already been booked out for the entire season but you never know your luck by just simply being on the waitlist and being here.

Two diverse styles, All women dancers,Two shows and for one week only.

Love BATSxx
