THE ABYSS: A House Dance Experience in Washington DC "The Final Cypher Session"

U Street Music Hall 1115 U St NW, Washington, Distretto di Columbia, Stati Uniti

Beyond Darkness, there is always Light; How deep are you willing to search?


The ABYSS, presented by Assassins DC and Urban Artistry, offers a new perspective on producing house dance experiences, by focusing on and honoring the most essential elements of house dance culture: the human spirit and cypher participation. We will be conducting qualifiers in cities around the United States culminating in the final ABYSS Cypher Session at the International Soul Society Festival in Washington DC on April 2014. In the process, we hope to inspire a culture of honesty, integrity, self-discovery, and fearlessness, along every participant's journey to evolved artistry.


At the start of any house dance experience are the layers within the sound we call house music. These layers are engineered to inspire free movement, cultural enlightenment and artistic growth. Often, unwanted darkness settles on these layers; a darkness made up of doubt, insecurity, fear, and perceived judgment. However, the human spirit's ability to overcome these inner walls, obstacles, and layers is inevitable… if you believe in yourself. The ABYSS celebrates the cypher as the ultimate space to explore these layers, share these layers, and create more layers, within ourselves and with each other. And so, the ABYSS calls upon Warriors of Light—dancers willing to go deep, to trust their guts, and explore the depths of the layers in and out of the cypher.

"Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brown

-Brené Brown



The pre-selection round will consist of 1-on-1 showcases, with each participant getting one, un-timed run.

Dancers, one dancer, or neither dancer will advance.

An Advisory Committee, made up of the event organizers, local House Dance professionals will choose 12 dancers to advance to the cypher session.


The cypher session will be a one-hour cypher of uninterrupted exchanges between the chosen dozen from pre-selection.


The 12 finalists will choose a winner amongst themselves. Each dancer will have one vote, but cannot vote for himself/herself.

The dancer with a majority of the votes will be the winner.

Should there be a tie(s), those receiving the highest number of votes will be given a chance to concede to the dancer(s) that they believe is the winner. If the dancers choose to continue, they will return to the cypher for an additional 30 minutes or the final exchange. During this final exchange, all dancers have the right to concede and proclaim the opponent(s) the winner. If no one concedes during or after the final exchange, the Advisory

Committee will choose a winner from those remaining, based on technique, musicality, originality and artistry.
