In 2005 Dr. Rennie Harris conceived Rennie Harris Collective Inc. to foster collaboration with other dancers and choreographers outside of Rennie Harris’ world renowned companies, Puremovement and RHAW. Versed in urban dance styles such as Popping, Locking, House, GQ, B-boying and Hip-Hop, Rennie Harris is an internationally recognized dance teacher and master choreographer. After receiving an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Bates College, Harris’ company was chosen as 1 of 4 US dance companies to serve as cultural ambassadors for President Obama’s “Dance Motion USA”, a program designed to share work by some of America’s finest dance makers in the effort to promote cultural exchange. Through the use of Hip-Hop B-boys and B-girls, the Rennie Harris Collective Inc. is committed to providing audiences with a sincere view of the essence and spirit of Hip-Hop.
