The multi-ethnic and multi-generational ensemble all jumped on the idea. Theresa DeAngelo created a piece, "Habitude," where the dancers, moving across the floor, stomping, and clapping, must create the music themselves. "I want the dancers themselves to listen to their inner rhythms," she says between rehearsals. One dancer takes the lead, setting the rhythm for the dance, allowing it the opportunity to be different every performance. In another piece, titled "Crash," two women dance around a couple of chairs (they will use a bench in performances) to that most familiar of urban sounds-the automobile. "Basically it's a very simple concept," the choreographer Allison Powell says, "of making movement mirror car sounds exactly with your body."
