      Description:

      Learn about the music and dance cultures that stem from various African American communities across the United States. Although these urban and hip-hop dance communities transpired amidst struggles and adversity, they have inspired a global commonwealth of artists, practitioners and creatives. In this presentation, we celebrate the diverse communities and influences that contribute to urban dance culture through music and dance. The emcee, DHG and dancers tell the story of where, when and how these dance styles were developed through storytelling, dance demonstrations, call-and-response games and interactive dance workshops. Dance styles in the presentation can include tap dance, locking, popping, breakin’ house dance, waacking and hip-hip. We are eager to engage an audience of all ages in celebrating the freedom to express ourselves, cultivate self-worth and respectfully hold space on and off the dance floor for each other.
