House Free-style: Like all of this generation of house dancers, Alicea taught himself to dance. He watched Olympic gymnastics on TV, picked up street hip hop styles, and then later, shifted to vogueing, combining all the material into a unique style. Home: New York (filmed in 1993).
Filmed in NYC, Check Your Body at the Door is a one-hour documentary about some of the 1990’s remarkable free-style house dancers and their lives outside the clubs. Filmed in the streets, in the clubs, and in the studio against a white background in silhouette, or in light pools, the dramatic movements and lines of their moving bodies are captured.
