Breakdancing meets Bach? It does when The Flying Steps, a German b-boy troupe, performs to Johann Sebastian Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier” at the Warner Theater January 6-8.

Red Bull Flying Bach, seen by 400,000 people in 31 countries, revolves around a story of six dancers being pushed by their demanding teacher as they rehearse for a major production. Arguments, resolutions, disappointments, and triumphs ensue, echoed by the music’s crescendos and dips and the constant shifting of dance tempos.

“Combining urban culture with classical influences is an incredible type of street art that we are excited to share with Washington D.C.,” said Vartan Bassil, who founded The Flying Steps in 1993 and teamed with conductor Christoph Hagel– a former student of Leonard Bernstein–to create the show in 2010. “It’s an opportunity to demonstrate that our members are not just break dancers — we are artists.”

Red Bull Flying Bach will be performing at the Warner Theater at 513 13th St. NW, in the Penn Quarter neighborhood, from Friday, Jan. 6 through Sunday, Jan. 8.
