Hiplet Ballerinas

Hiplet fuses classical pointe technique with African, Latin, Hip-Hop and urban dance styles that are rooted in communities of color. Performances may incorporate the rhythms of African drums with Tchaikovsky, arabesques and beat-boxing or even Tango en pointe — all while showcasing Hiplet's trademark sass, hip movements, and struts against popular music from Black Violin to Beyoncé. The innovative touring company continues to "wow" audiences around the world with their fiery performances and amazing skills.

The professional dance company of the Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center, Hiplet was created by Artistic Director Homer Hans Bryant and was specifically designed to make ballet accessible to everyone, especially students of color, low-income families and dancers with disabilities.
