'Flying Steps': Electronic dance meets Bach

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Break dancing began right here in the United States, but one group from Germany has found a new way to stretch the limit of the dance.

The “Flying Steps” are bringing their show exclusively to Chicago. The group is preparing to perform as the “Red Bull Flying Bach.”

They combine Hip Hop and Classical music. A fusion of contemporary and break dancing all done to the sounds of Johann Sebastian Bach, a 17th century German composer and musician.

"At some parts it was really easy we find some great ideas for footwork, choreography. And at some parts, we feel like ok, we are in trouble, it's hard work," said “Flying Bach” dancer, Michael Roseminn.

The group has been together since 1993. When they decided to take on this project they turned to contemporary dancer from Sweden, Anna Holmstrom. She was thrilled to land the unique role.

"I did a lot of gymnastics when I was a kid, so I was always fascinated by acrobatics and also the ability to fly. If I had a super power, that would be my superpower," said Holmstrom.

“You can see that break dancing is not just something that kids do on the streets, it's actually an art form," she added.

A new art form being introduced to America right here in Chicago.

"We are on world tour more than 3 years and then we want to come to America to show the people what we are doing,” said Roseminn. “ We were thinking it would be great to come to Chicago, the dancing scene is really big here. The classical and the break dance scene."

The “Flying Bach” will be performing at the Civic Opera House from Friday through June 29th. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
