Gris Gris Strut

Seven years ago, New Orleans witnessed the birth of a new kind of dance troupe, Gris Gris Strut. They’re blazing a path as the first ever troupe performing hard-hitting, full body, “forward-motion choreography” on the parade routes (a style choreographer and dancer Cherie Pitre created) to the beats of their marching band, alongside their flag corps. Off carnival, you can find them saucing up the theater, film, festival, events, and second lines. GGS believes preserving the traditions of New Orleans & giving back the city is a priority.  They offer a jr. corps program for local 12-17 year old dancers & musicians.
