Choreographed by the Buffalo State dance faculty. Whether social, cultural, or artistic, the joy of communicating with one another in the language of movement unites a group like no other activity. Recognized for its universality and power, dance liberates creativity, embodies history, celebrates culture, and builds harmony. As choreographers, we celebrate dance as the art of body movement. By cultivating and abstracting gestures and actions derived from life experiences, we create a conversation between our dancers and strive to connect with our audience. Buffalo State's diverse community allows for a fusion of storytelling and celebration. This commonality exceeds the physical body, creating a space for the mind and spirit to further explore the relationships between people. We invite you to actively witness dance, a kinesthetic art, as a way of knowing, thinking, communicating, translating, and creating thought. We hope you will be inspired to let your Body Speak and experience the universality of the dance.
They first achieved prominence in the mid 1970s, emerging from the same Jersey music scene as Southside Johnny's good friend Bruce Springsteen. Their first three albums were produced by band co-founder Steven Van Zandt (E Street Band, The Sopranos). The Van Zandt written "I Don't Want To Go Home" became Southside's signature song, a mix of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics. In 1982 Rolling Stone Magazine voted Southside's Hearts of Stone among the top 100 albums of the 70s and 80s and Jon Bon Jovi attributes Johnny and his Jukes as one of his key musical influences.
