Check Your Body at the Door is a film about underground House dancers and dancing in New York City’s golden decade, the 1990s.

Featuring interviews and rare dance footage with legendary House dancers, the documentary reveals the virtuosity of the eclectic urban dance style. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the dancers from the film who are also part of Ephrat Asherie's work UNDERSCORED.

A $15 donation is suggested.
