Compagnie KLP, ‘Tour of Duty’ (Alliance Francaise)

Alliance Française's Urban Corps Transatlantic HIp-Hop Festival presents a performance by the French dance company KLP. Set in 1960's Brooklyn, "Tour of Duty," sounds like a battle on the field, but in actuality it's a different kind of war. A group of friends reminisce of the hardships they've had to face in the face of social, economic and cultural barriers, while simultaneously telling the story of how hip-hop began. The Washington Post writes, "Junious Brickhouse, founder of the District-based hip-hop collective Urban Artistry, is a bit skeptical about the storyline — Brooklyn? What about the South Bronx? — but suspects that the dancing will be on target. 'I’ll be honest. I think there are some things that get lost in translation...but at the end of the day, I just want to get down with some nonverbal art.'" Atlas Performing Arts Center. 8 p.m. $23.

Summer is almost here — time to work that booty while looking incredibly silly if you suffer from having no rhythm with 90 minutes of Zumba Fitness: A Party for Empowerment at The Dunes. 7 p.m. $15 online or $20 cash only at door.
