ninja-williCheck Your Body at the Door, a film conceived by dance historian Sally R. Sommer and dancer Archie Burnett, documents some of the remarkable House dancing styles in New York’s underground scene in the 1990s.

Through interviews and rare dance footage, “Check Your Body” memorializes the enduring legends of House dance and contextualizes a wide variety of House dance forms.

Filmed at the clubs, and in a studio against a white background and silhouetted in light pools, these dancers’ virtuosic moves are revealed.
