Once Upon a MoonThe REMIX is an action-packed, rhythmic rollercoaster, that explores the five elements of percussive dance (RHYTHM, ENERGY, MUSICALITY, IMPROVISATION, and secret X-FACTOR.)  This interactive performance fuses global music with tap dance and stepping, with everyone dancing along the way. Get ready to explore ways to create music with your body as we REMIX your summer!

About the Artist: SOLE Defined (SD) is the Washington Metro area’s leading arts organization specializing in percussive dance – using the body as an instrument to create musical expression.  SD is a fusion of music, movement, and imagination, promoting an understanding and appreciation for African American percussive dance forms rooted in the African Diaspora.  Founded in 2011, under the joint leadership of Ryan K. Johnson and Quynn Johnson, SD merges education, performance, and community outreach to advance respect for Black vernacular percussive dance and to raise admiration for the genre as a vital part of the concert dance academia.
