Rhythm Inside/Out showcases Be the Groove’s unique high-energy blend of rhythmic choreography and intricate drumming while challenging audiences to consider the prevalence of rhythm not just in music and dance, but in their daily lives. From the pulse in our bodies to the changing of the seasons, patterns all around us hold the power to guide our paths, characterize relationships, and inform personal choices. Through body percussion and unique instrumentation, in addition to vocal components like beatboxing and spoken poetry, BTG encourages students to explore new modes of creative expression using themselves as a primary instrument. Audiences will enjoy a few moments of participation—both with the full crowd and with select students who volunteer to improvise with BTG on stage—and learn about musical concepts like “tempo” and “dynamics” to begin thinking critically about what they’re seeing and hearing. This fun, educational, and interactive exploration of beats and patterns will resonate with students of any grade, leading them to discover surprising things about themselves and the world surrounding them.
