STLRC Performance Season 2023-2024

Tickets on sale now!

We are so proud to announce our first full performance season in-residence at Missouri Baptist University.

Named Dance Magazine's "Top 25 to Watch in 2023" and featured in St. Louis Magazine as 2023's "Best Dance Company," STL Rhythm Collaborative is kicking off the 23-24 performance season with our biggest collaboration yet.

Our audience knows us for our electric, high-energy performances that set the stage on fire. This season will be no different. Through these groundbreaking collaborations, we continue to celebrate the connection and joy of live music and dance in new, different ways!  

All performances run about an hour in length with no intermission.

All performances will take place in the Dale Williams Fine Arts Center:

October 6-8, 2023

Live At The Last Hotel

Based on true events, Live At The Last Hotel is named for the jazz album by the Hard Bop Messengers, released in 2022. Live At The Last Hotel, written by John Covelli, utilizes vocals and unique musical phrasing to tell the story of the hustle and bustle of a St. Louis hotel staff and its guests as they move through the hotel, “Meeting Friends,” enjoying the “Rooftop View,” and “Make the Beds.”

The live performance is a celebration of various dance styles and live music. The musicians of the Hard Bop Messengers are featured and interact with the dancers during the show. The cast of dancers will feature the professional tap ensemble, moSTLy TAP, of STL Rhythm Collaborative as well as St. Louis jazz and modern dancers. Choreography by Cecil Slaughter, Erin Morris, and Maria Majors will bring the dancers to life as hotel guests, staff, and even the traffic preventing the band leader from making it to his gig in the hotel lounge.  Join us after the performance for a 20 minute Q&A with the cast.
