Dancer explores women in hip hop

The Emory Friends of Dance Lecture Series presents “B-Girling: A Herstory of Hip Hop Dance and Culture” on Tuesday, Sept. 14.  

Teena Marie Custer, B-girl and hip hop dance theatre artist, will explore the journey of women in hip hop dance and culture by focusing on female contributors in the areas of DJing, MCing, graffiti writing, B-Girling and other hip hop dance styles.

Demonstrations by Emory student dancers will accompany the presentation.

The free event begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts Dance Studio.

Custer will also be teaching two master classes on house dance and breakdancing for Emory students while on campus.  

Custer performs internationally with Venus Fly Trap, an all-female street dance crew. She has performed solo theatrical works, won freestyle dance contests, was featured on an episode of MTV’s MADE, and appeared in the film “Leading Ladies,” for which she was assistant choreographer.
