About

We're celebrating our community's strength, resilience, self-empowerment, and joy!

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, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, & over 40 Broadway shows, perform beautifully crafted pieces to honor the legacy of James Brown, DMX, 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.

Please come celebrate our ancestors' strength on whose shoulders we stand, as we continue to make a way for the next generations. All are welcome to share this joy!
