Breakdance troupe kicks off the Something Different Series

Experience an electrifying live dance performance with Soul Street Dance at Tryon Fine Arts Center on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. One of the most dynamic premier street dance companies in existence, Soul Street boasts technical and artistic skills, stage presence and wit allowing them to push the performance envelope to an amazing standard of excellence.

The Houston, Texas-based troupe includes Javier Garcia, Rock Williams, Cedric Hicks, and Roy Ramirez. Although they are called a “dance company”, their talents far outstrip any one category. In addition to dance, Soul Street performers are actors, athletes (with uncanny strength), and lately, songwriters and musicians.

Soul Street’s high standard and attention to detail coupled with impeccable business practices earned them the honor of representing the United States abroad under the auspices of the Arts Envoys touring program from the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. They have recently completed two tours of the European Eastern Bloc, sharing the joy of dance through workshops and performances with young aspiring dancers from the former Soviet Union countries. They are currently in preparation to represent the U.S. further in an upcoming tour of Haiti.

In all travels they garner goodwill for our country and Houston, Texas by modeling sober, responsible behavior along with open hearts and minds and clean fun that allow them to seamlessly share experience with all cultures and across all age groups.

A huge repertoire and outstanding flexibility have earned them ‘rock star’ status worldwide, and now they bring their talents to Tryon.

Soul Street Dance is presented by the Something Different series at TFAC on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m., thanks to support from the Kirby Innovative Events Fund at Polk County Community Foundation.

To ensure the performance is accessible for a wide range of the foothills, tickets are offered at a special Buy One Get One Free price.

Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling TFAC at 828-859-8322.
