Adam Warburton with dancers Sean Cheng and Paulina Bocian, will perform “Our House“.
House dance is a dance style that was born out of New York in the 80s. The music originally came from Chicago. The term ‘House’ was an abbreviation of ‘Warehouse’, a venue in Chicago where a lot of this music was first played. ‘Our House’ is a performance about House dance and club culture. Welcome to ‘Our House’.
