CABD Community Movement Workshop
Wednesday, September 25
6:30 – 8:00 PM | FREE
Frederick Rehearsal Studio, UR Modlin Center (453 Westhampton Way)
Rooted in the African American vernacular, this movement workshop celebrates the power of African American social dance and its impact and influence on American dance forms throughout history. Participants are taken on a social dance journey. From “the wing” to “the whip”, attendees investigate the ways communities used movement as a way of social expression including at times, protest, liberation, and/or healing or purely for fun and entertainment. By learning about the past, it is Brown’s hope that the spirit of expression through movement is embodied in our present day – providing the individual with a platform to celebrate their personal expression with the community of participants.
Space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. To guarantee your spot, please pre-register.
Camille A. Brown & Dancers perform at the Modlin Center on September 27 at 7:30 PM. Workshop participants will receive a promo code for a pair of complimentary tickets. Info and tickets at modlin.richmond.edu.
Hosted by Modlin Center for the Arts in partnership with the UR Department of Theatre and Dance.
