Street Beat: Percussion & Dance to Visit UT Knoxville

Modern percussion troupe Street Beat visits the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus Friday, Oct. 23, as part of the 2009-2010 Cultural Attractions Series. Street Beat creator Ben Hansen and his 10-member company of drummers, musicians and dancers perform what critics have called an “urbanized journey through percussion.” Using ordinary items such as buckets, trash cans or a set of car rims, Street Beat performers combine urban rhythms, hip hop moves and break-dance acrobatics.
