Specifically designed to make ballet accessible to all, Hiplet™ is a fusion between classical pointe technique, hip-hop, and a variety of other urban dance styles. Hiplet™ has blossomed immensely since its creation by Artistic Director Homer Hans Bryant in the early 90’s. Performances may incorporate the rhythms of African drums with Tchaikovsky, arabesques and beat-boxing or even tango en pointe – all while showcasing Hiplet’s trademark sass, hip movements, and struts against popular music audiences will recognize from Black Violin to Beyonce.

After going viral on Homer Bryant’s Instagram in 2016, Hiplet™ has received recognition worldwide, with appearances in Germany, France, Spain, South Korea and Hong Kong. With Mercedes Benz, Vogue’s Anna Wintour, New York and Paris Fashion Week, W Magazine, Versace, and Old Navy to name a few, have culminated in an incredible worldwide demand for a live show featuring Homer Bryant’s innovative technique.
