The 11th Annual Juneteenth Dance Celebration happens on Saturday, June 27 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. We’re celebrating our community’s strength, resilience, self-empowerment, and joy, and we want you there!
All events are FREE & FACEBOOK LIVE on Grown Women Dance Collective’s Facebook.
All-stars of the dance world come together to celebrate dance, music & American history. Former soloists with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Martha Graham Company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, Complexions, Dayton Contemporary, Lula Washington, Ballet Hispanico, & over 40 Broadway shows, perform beautifully crafted pieces to honor the legacy of Bill Withers, James Brown, Bobby Womack, Nina Simone & Maya Angelou. Using dance and music to teach and celebrate African American history, the power of dancers in their 40’s & 50’s uplift, inspire and create a beautiful healing space for us to see ourselves and see each other.
