Rennie Harris, founder of internationally known Philadelphia-based Hip Hop dance troupe Puremovement, formed another company called Rennie Harris RHAW in 2007, functioning as a training/feeder company for the original group. Friday and Saturday at the Aronoff Center, the young dancers of RHAW will dazzle with their mastery of classic Hip Hop moves like popping, locking, Boogaloo, B-girl and House, while throwing in Salsa, tap and other vernacular forms for good measure. But there’s more than just showing-off. In his choreography, Harris aims to deconstruct the popular perception of urban dance as violent and undisciplined by giving it a dramatic dimension. Presented by Contemporary Dance Theater (CDT). 


8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. $22-$32. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-621-2787, cincinnatiarts.org.
