Conceived in 2007, Founder Rennie Harris originally founded Rennie Harris Awe-inspiring Works as a youth organization driven by community outreach, education i.e. lectures and classes, as well as mentorship.
Harris’ inspiration for this youth driven company (second company) was inspired by the overwhelming interest from teens and young adults to join his internationally renowned company Rennie Harris Puremovement.
Ultimately RHAW is a training company that will teach its pre-professional dancers: professionalism, production, Street Dance History, technique in the various styles of street dance, such as but not limited to, Campbell Locking, Popping & Boogaloo, B-boy/girl, House and Hip hop dance. RHAW will usher in Rennie Harris’ newest and brightest street dancers to be featured in the premiere works of Rennie Harris Puremovement.
Downplaying the abstract while pushing a dramatic aesthetic, RHAW will forge new paths for young hip hop hopefuls, and will present Hip hop in its “RHAW-est.” forms as we take it back to basics.
