|The Street Beats Group from New York City will be drumming and dancing on Grand Bahama one night only, Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 8 p.m. at The Regency Theatre|
The Grand Bahama Performing Arts Society will introduce Grand Bahama to a team of vibrant professional young performers—The Street Beats Group—whose high energy shows of urban movement, percussion, hip hop, break dancing, drumming on everyday objects (such as five gallon plastic buckets, household brooms, trash cans, and even computer keyboards), are reminiscent of the popular off-Broadway show, STOMP.
Dazzling audiences with their unique beats and rhythms, The Street Beats Group will perform one-show only on Saturday night, October 1st at 8 p.m., and will also be conducting two student workshops on the morning of Saturday, October 1st at 10 a.m.
"The Street Beats Group's interactive workshops are great for beginners and advanced students. The fundamentals we teach will inspire and give a great new perspective on how you can make music by being creative with everyday objects," explained Zoilo Ruiz, the president of The Street Beats Group.
Individuals wishing to participate in either of the workshops are asked to call Gloria McGlone, a G.B.P.A.S committee member, at 242-373-2887 for workshop details. Special discounts are available for workshop and concert combos.
"Street Beats" promises to be an energetic and colourful finale to the Grand Bahama Performing Arts Society's third season and could not be possible without the continued support of Grand Bahama Performing Arts Society members and sponsors, who extend special thanks to Thayer's Natural Remedies, Pelican Bay Hotel, American Airlines /American Eagle, The Bahamas Weekly, and Keen i Media for their sponsorship.
For a small island, Grand Bahama is lucky to have big-time talent visiting our beautiful little part of the world. To get your tickets before they sell out, or for other information about The Grand Bahama Performing Arts Society, click here.
