'Fly With Friends' for free at Miller Outdoor Theatre

By MOLLY GLENTZER
Houston Chronicle

Members of the Fly Dance Co. bring their hip-hop moves to Miller Outdoor Theatre for a free Friday show.
In the late 1990s, the all-male Fly Dance Co. was known as much for its bad offstage attitude as its head spins. The troupe's members were Hispanic and black teens who honed their hip-hop tricks in garages and clubs. They liked the idea of being famous but resisted being corralled by the white, middle-aged drill-team coach who wanted to make it happen for them.

Kathy Wood made them rehearse regularly, dance together to music they didn't like and (gasp) wear costumes. Their hip-hop friends called them sellouts. Traditional dance folks didn't know what to make of them. But audiences loved their comic antics and high spirits onstage.

Dance troupe to give show in Mocksville Friday night

By DENIS KASPER

Looking more like muscular professional athletes than dancers, members of the troupe combine cultures and unite generations by marrying urban moves, like break dancing, with classical music from composers including Bach and Haydn.
