I’m really glad that Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours turned out to be so productive for me. I was able to wrap my head around the ideas that were all circling in my head.
Boston’s legendary Wondertwins (Billy and Bobby McClain) will present A World of Pure Imagination, designed as 3D-style movement using various songs from movies and sound bites from four different decades.
Billy & Bobby McClain started dancing at the age of 8. The childhood beginnings started as they would imitate a weekly dance show called “Soul Train” and by 9 years old they were doing their “WonderTwins show” for family events such as cookouts and barbecues. At 10 years old they won their first dance competition which was judged by the legendary rapper KURTIS BLOW. Later that year Billy and Bobby were recruited to join the Boston’s first professional street dance crew “The Funk Affects”. A group that influenced and were very inspirational to the early success of new edition and new kids on the block. They spent 7 years with the company gaining recognition by opening up concerts for big names like Run-DMC, LL Cool J to name a few.
Today, the award-winning duo street dance pioneers from Boston have headlined at Jacob’s Pillow “Unreal Hip Hop” & Inside/Out Dance Festival, Brooklyn Dance Fest, Rochester University, Southern Vermont, Dance Festival, Colby College, NYC Town Hall, UraGano Italy, Concepto Vimen Mexico, TedX talks Boston, David White’s Tap The Yard, DanceNOW Boston, DanceNOW NYCJoes Pub, Dixon Place, The Dance Hall, The Music Hall Loft and The Lincoln Center. They are also six-time winners of Showtime at The Apollo Theater and performed a record 16 appearances on the Apollo Stage.
