Ephrat Asherie Dance
Dance Center debut

October 11–13, 2018 • 7:30 p.m.

“Asherie (aka Bounce) blew the audience away with her handsomely arranged and expert breaking, club dancing and vogueing. Simply put, it's great to see a woman completely own the floor.”



Ephrat Asherie Dance makes its Dance Center debut with Odeon, a high-octane new work set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth. “Bona fide b-girl” (The Boston Globe) and Bessie Award-winning Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie layers breaking, hip-hop, house, and vogue with Nazareth’s exhilarating fusion of Afro-Brazilian rhythms and European classical traditions.
