Catch some funky moves and some cool motorcycles this weekend in DC

Weekend Round-Up: January 7 and 8

Red Bull Flying Bach, is a one-of-a-kind, innovative adaptation by the Flying Steps dance troupe of Johannes Sebastian Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier,” that breaks down the barriers between high society and urban culture. And its in DC from Friday, Jan. 6, to Sunday, Jan. 8, at the Warner Theatre. Tickets start at $32.

The story follows six dancers and one teacher, rehearsing for their big day. Arguments, fights, disappointments and delights — just like the highs and lows of the notes, the moods and steps of the dancers change constantly. But their teacher is pushing them, pushing the boundaries to make it work. As a mysterious woman enters the rehearsal room, the conflicts climax: contemporary dance meets breakdance, man meets woman, desire meets refusal, and arrogance meets curiosity.

Since 2010, Red Bull Flying Bach has created an interest in classical music in a scene where it historically didn’t belong. The show has since delighted over 400,000 people in 31 different countries around the world.
