The Dance Enthusiast Interviews Dance Documentarian Sally Sommer

Delve into an alternative realm where dance and music coalesce, attracting free, footloose spirits. Sally R. Sommer’s documentary “Check Your Body At The Door” provides rare footage of the underground House scene of the 1990s and intimate interviews with pioneer House dancers. Like New York City, its place of origin, House dance is a melting pot containing elements of Salsa, African circle dancing, Funk, and more.
