XYZ NYC: CHampionship rounD

Choreography by Brandon Powers

The Tank
151 W 46th St

Brandon was the winner of xyz nyc 2016!

xyz nyc is a new approach to modern dance-making in New York City. Bringing the choreographic process to a reality-TV-inspired format, xyz nyc invites modern dance-makers to meet brand new collaborators and create an entirely new performance-ready piece in a single week.

Each show is given a theme and surprise challenge the choreographers must tackle. A guest judge gives feedback to each of the choreographers, and the audience votes on their favorite dance. A winner is crowned at the end of the show, winning fame and glory and the chance of developing a new work for a run at The Tank.
