“Preserving the Legacy” of the Art of Black Dance & Music will be a four day conference of Rhythm/Percussion, Dance and Culture sessions from the African Diaspora. Events begin on Friday, May 22nd and continue through until Monday, May 25th.
A photo exhibit opens each day’s events highlighting ABDM’s past 40+ years of teaching and performing the heritage of African and African Americans in the Diaspora. Akili Haynes will be the lead musician and De Ama Battle will discuss photo exhibit and lead the dance circles.
Our special guest Jorge Arce, Director of Humano, will lead the Caribbean rhythm circle on Sunday, May 24 from 2 - 3PM.
Bring your instrument of choice, your dance clothes, and on Monday, from 1 – 4 PM bring a dish of your favorite food for the Umoja (Unity) Reunion and closing reception.
We are calling all ABDM alums, teachers, musicians and friends, who were/are part of ABDM’s Preserving the Legacy, to come and enjoy good music, good dancing, good food and good friends we don’t often see, and end with a great coming together at the UMOJA (Unity) REUNION and closing reception on Monday from 1- 4 PM.
