Live In Color Dance Collective


Founded in 1989, Live In Color Dance Collective (LICDC) is a culturally diverse dance company comprised of remarkably talented, captivating and vivacious individuals. The dance ensemble is a true representation of life as it displays a mixture of Caribbean, African, Latin, and Urban cultures, as well as a diverse range of ages. Under the direction of Zedric Bembry, LICDC has been able to attain well-deserved recognition, dazzling the nation with their unique, crowd-pleasing performances. Through his fierce, jazzy, cutting-edge, energetic footwork and rhythmic body movements, Zedric infused a new flavor into the hip hop industry; a creation he terms "Urban Funk". "Urban Funk" encompasses a variety of techniques derived from the roots of the African continent. After combining a touch of jazz, a pinch of ballet, a twist of merengue, a dab of popping and locking, an abundance of street dance, and a sprinkle of acrobatics, Zedric's funkadelic style comes to life. His brisk, keen, dynamic choreography raises audiences to their feet every time. His creativity also encompasses his natural flare for fashion and aesthetics, complementing his productions with extravagant costumes and intricately designed sets.
