Recession Dances, And So Can You!

For the Stage


Recession Dances, and so can you!

6 dancers, 25 minutes

History tells us that when the economy heads south, people get out and dance. Created in response to the Great Recession, the movement draws on dance styles popular during previous 20th Century recession eras, such as the Lindy Hop (Great Depression) and Hustle (70’s oil crisis), peppered with humor and wit.
