Sa-Choom



Introduction

The only language that transcends time, space and nationality... Dance!

Dance–cal ‘Sa–Choom’ is a performance without words, expressing itself using universal language of movement. The usual barriers between audience and performers collapse as enthusiastic audience members join in. Standing ovations are the norm.

The word ‘Sa–Choom’ is the short version of ‘Salanghamyeon Choomel chula’. This means ‘Dance when you are in love’. How do we see when people are in love? Most of the time their body language gives us that information. The ability to move people by using only your body is the power of the performance.

‘Sa–Choom’ chooses dance as a unique form of expression, its combination of cutting edge artistic integrity and high entertainment values has delighted international audiences.

From the word go ‘Sa–choom’ incorporates the latest styles.
‘Sa–choom’ audiences are always vocal in their appreciation and often stand throughout. The power and speed of dancing, blended with elements of comedy take dance to a whole new level.
