See This: Companhia Urbana de Dança at the ICA


Plenty of athletes will be heading to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics this summer—but this month, some of the city’s acrobatic talents are coming to Boston. Drawing dancers from the favelas of Rio, Companhia Urbana de Dança melds urban street moves and hip-hop with contemporary dance and traditional forms such as samba. Watch them break it down at the ICA, where the company makes its Boston debut on April 15 and 16. / Marlo Jappan

Companhia Urbana de Dança performs on April 15 and 16 at 8 pm at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave., Boston, $40, (617-478-3103)
