|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on April 24, 2021 at 12:00 pm

Facilitated by: ClancyWorks Dance Company’s Though Leader, Teaching and Performing Artist, Devon “Steel Toe” Wallace

Through dance, explore how we uplift and honor the genius and artistry of the African-American social cultures.

With a specific lens focused on Black Revisionism and performative allyship, Devon begins this workshop with current mainstream social dances, street and club style culture. We continue with enlightening discussion highlighting often overlooked Black contributions to vernacular/technical dance. From here, the group collectively works together to build action steps and tools to cultivate authentic allyship with the Black community that uplifts and supports Black dance in its truest most veritable forms.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 21st from 4pm-6pm EDT AND/OR Saturday, April 24th from 12pm-2pm EDT for BREAD: Building Racial Equity in the Arts through Dance facilitated by Devon “Steel Toe” Wallace. Presented by ClancyWorks, these workshops will remain free of charge to participants. Please email deti.programs@clancyworks.org with any questions.⁠
