Social Dance Class with the dancers from Camille A. Brown Company
Rooted in the African-American vernacular, this movement workshop with members of Camille A. Brown & Dancers (CABD) 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 Camille’s hope that the spirit of expression through movement is embodied in our present day – providing the individual with a platform to celebrate their identity and to share their personal expression with the community of participants.
