"Take your time, train, work hard,
know your worth, have your own voice"
Rikkai Scott with DanceEast
Rhythmflow was founded by Rikkai Scott in 2016, ignited by his passion and love for tap dance. Rhythmflow signature style is tap fusion, which is rooted in traditional forms yet it combines elements of non-traditional movement in tap, hip hop and contemporary disciplines. Our tap fusion dance is archaic in the way that it links a new style, grooves through the whole body, the feet, and tap dance of the jazz tradition. Most of our artistic identity comes from the Afro-American heritage of traditional time steps.
Formed as a platform to bring diverse artists together, Rhythmflow focus to create and tour a wide range of inspiring, powerful tap fusion productions to theatres and festivals in the UK and across the globe. Rhythmflow constantly seeks unique performance opportunities, which challenge creativity, develop character work, educate and broaden professionals inside the dance world.
The company explores diversity within dance celebrating the company dancers’ talents whilst pushing their limitations, and constantly expanding their artistic potential and supporting their own personal growth and ambitions. We are individuals, a collective, a family, a company of artists who use our skills to present truth.
“Great characters, beautiful strong and powerful movers”
In 2016, we created our first site specific production Watch This Space out of nothing. Rikkai came up with the idea of creating a duet piece which we dance specific rhythms in an empty space. Shortly after launching the piece we recieved a commission as part of Artists 4 Artists showcase sharing to research and develop the duet at Redbridge Drama Centre.
To our complete surprise, our first theatre project SENSE received funding from Bermuda Cultural Affairs and the piece toured nationally and internationally at venues including: The Place (London),Theatre Deli (London),Rhoda McGaw Theatre(Woking),Peckham Theatre (London),Earl Cameron Theatre (Bermuda) and Espai La Rambleta (Valencia).
We are strengthening our activities in the region, developing more
awareness towards tap dance and interactive formats for a new audience,
and we are also better organizing the company.
We look forward to welcoming you into our community!
