«Imagine an improv comedy show where dancing, not laughs, is the currency. Then imagine a musicians’ jam session where the band is compelled to keep the dancers’ pace instead of the other way around.
In New York, dance gatherings are hardly uncommon but what’s distinct about LayeRhythm is the way it bridges the two groups with crowd participation.» — New York Times
