Brazz Dance Theater is a dance company based in Miami, Florida that blends Afro-Brazilian and contemporary dance. It was founded in 1998 by choreographer and dancer Augusto Soledade. Founded in 1998, Brazz Dance Theater is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Augusto Soledade and dance partner Rachelle Zambito started the company in Rochester, New York. In 2004, the company moved to Miami, FL, and has found a home at the Little Haiti Cultural Center. Since its relocation to Miami, Brazz Dance Theater has enjoyed an unprecedented growth, both financially and artistically, that has placed the company among the leading contemporary dance companies in the community. As a contemporary dance company, Brazz Dance Theater’s role is to seek innovative projects that create fresh content and outlook on global life, becoming a vessel for relevant contemporary dance repertory. They aim to function as a kind of Griot, story-teller, of choreographic ideas and stories. A Griot that brings ancient knowledge to the present revering the past, and aspiring a future that is filled with rich cultural and artistic context. Brazz Dance P.O.
