Announcing our latest project! Welcome to The Savoy is a project where dance and theatre, history and cutting-edge technology meet! We are going to reopen the doors of the now lost Savoy Ballroom, in an immersive experience at the crossroads of immersive theatre and virtual reality. Yes we are reconstructing the legendary Savoy Ballroom, where our dance was born, in virtual reality! We want to transport people back in time to the Savoy in the late 1930s, Harlem’s most captivating nightspot and one of the first integrated ballrooms in the USA.
The Savoy Ballroom was a legendary dance hall on Lenox Avenue between 140th and 141st Streets in Harlem, New York. It was known as “The World’s Finest Ballroom” and “Home of Happy Feet”. From 1926 to 1958 it’s twin bandstands showcased the world’s finest jazz musicians. The dances born on its mahogany dancefloor would sweep the world and live on to this day. The Savoy was the heart and soul of Harlem.
