James Brown Dance Fund

Apollo Theater Presents A New Production:

"James Brown: Get on the Good Foot
A Celebration in Dance"



The Apollo Theater is partnering with Lafayette, Louisiana to develop the production prior to its Apollo World Premiere in October 2013. The evening-long dance show is set to songs by the legendary soul icon and will showcase Brown's dynamic influence on global choreography and music. The show, developed by six choreographers from around the world, will showcase the stylistic and cultural influences Brown has on artists and will feature modern, tap, tango, hip hop and kathak dance styles. 

The theater is partnering with the city of Lafayette and other entities in Lafayette to develop the work and host residency activities. A national tour is also being planned following the premiere at the Apollo.
