Drama/Dance Series – 8 x 1 hr
Take a hip-hop dancer from the streets of Toronto and a posh British public school in need of a dance instructor and you have BOUNCE. A ﬁsh-out-of-water story about an unlikely teacher and a group of students whose worlds collide in an explosion of dance, music, humour and life lessons.
In order to transform London’s Kensington School into a more relevant institution for today’s youth, Headmaster Wright is trying to shake off the school’s stuffy image by propping up its arts program. Wright’s hoping that the addition of a hip hop dance crew lead by his nephew, Bounce, a Toronto street dancer, will bring some “swag” to the school.
BOUNCE taps into the beauty and power in this modern dance phenomenon – LYRICAL HIP HOP – made popular and expressed.
