The Hiplet Ballerinas are the professional Company of the Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center in the USA.

Hiplet™ was created by Artistic Director Homer Hans Bryant & evolved from the "Rap Ballet" of the 1990's.  Specifically designed to make Ballet accessible to all people, Hiplet™  is a fusion between classical pointe technique, Hip-Hop, and a variety of other dance styles.

Where Are The Hiplet Ballerinas?

Hiplet Ballerinas concluded the 2021-2022 Tour Season in their hometown, Chicago, IL with "Hiplet Tour Chicago", on September 17 and 18 at The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts - University of Chicago.  People came from different parts of the globe to see this amazing Company bring the "sauce" home to Chicago, one participant arriving in from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 


Needless to say, the reviews are in...........



Currently, the Company is performing at private events in the Chicago area and preparing to travel again beginning at the end of January.  Preparations are also being made for the 2022-2023 Tour Season.

When the Hiplet Company is not performing, they participate in classes to continually sharpen their dancing skills.
