TACAW and Dance Initiative are proud to present Passion Fruit Dance Company – a street, club and educational dance company founded in 2016 by Tatiana Deardouin. The company is made up of Lauriane Ogay, Mai Lê Hô and Tatiana Desardouin (artistic director and choreographer).

The company’s mission is to promote the authenticity of styles and cultures of street and clubbing dance; highlight his black heritage and contribution to society; exploring the human experience; to address social issues such as racism and inspire young artists to share their voices. Join us for an evening of performances. “Dance Within Your Dance” was created by Tatiana to invite audiences to question their understanding of “groove”. I define “groove” as a constant flow of energy through the body, which allows dancers to communicate through music and movement. For Tatiana, the groove is the physical and auditory manifestation of the experience of black people. She uses Dance Within Your Dance as a way to honor and maintain the essence of this culture, and also as an invitation to open the conversation about race. Dance Within Your Dance is critically acclaimed and highly engaging.
