Experience how dance & movement from African & African-American perspectives lift the spirits of marginalized communities. Join us for fun social dances with drumming after the dance demonstrations
“Black History: A Living Resistance in Dance and Movement” will focus on understanding dance from African and African-American perspectives, how movement helps to shape the attitudes of our youth and marginalized communities and how today, those movements and the music behind the movements create a communal sense of dealing with pain and social injustices, discrimination and oppression.
Join us for audience participation of fun social dances with drumming after the discussion and dance demonstrations - for all ages.
