Grubb Dance Troupe from Serbia Returns to Montreal
Grubb is back. GRUBB stands for Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats and features 12 Roma teens between 14 and 18 who perform a mix of hip hop dance with comtemporary and Serbian folk dance. The home of Grubb is in Belgrade, Serbia and their mission is to “keep kids interested and motivated”.
“It was not so much teaching them to dance as teaching them how not to give up,” recalled Archambault who helped to choreograph the show.
GRUBB, June 28-30 and July 2-3 at 8 p.m. in Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, 84 Ste. Catherine Street W. Tickets, $61-$71.35. For information, 514-871-1881 or montrealjazzfest.com.
