Featuring choreography by Caleb Teicher and collaborators Evita Arce, Latasha Barnes, and Nathan Bugh
With live music performed by Eyal Vilner Big Band
Acclaimed choreographer and rising star Caleb Teicher and friends are creating Swing Out to bring the best of swing dance to the stage. Northrop is scheduling the immersive dance party for Fall 2021 when our community can enjoy it to its fullest. In the meantime, we’ll delve into the creative process and the history of Swing and Lindy Hop with the creative team.
"With a style that fuses tap dance, Lindy hop and vernacular jazz, Caleb Teicher has quickly proven himself a choreographic force to be reckoned with." (Dance Magazine)
