Footsteps in the Dark is an original dance production created by Words Beats and Life showcasing the work of American and international dancers of Muslim backgrounds who specialize in forms of dance connected to hip hop culture.
Dance has always been a part of Muslim cultures across the globe, some of which has even had spiritual implications to the movements. Today, some of the most compelling hip hop dancers in Europe, North Africa and the U.S.–poppers, lockers, breakers, choreographers, and those innovating new styles– happen to also be Muslim.
Footsteps in The Dark aims to not only showcase some of the best Muslim hip hop dancers, it also thematically explores the sometimes delicate nature in which hip hop and dance intersect with Muslim communities. This is our response from a global Muslim hip hop dance community to create a broader understanding of who we are beyond a single identifier.
