African American Dance Company 17th Annual Dance Workshop

Indiana University’s African American Dance Company presents their 17th annual studio Dance Workshop from March 6-7, 2015 at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center, Grand Hall, located at 275 N. Jordan Ave. Bloomington, IN.

The mission of the workshop is to expose participants to dance from the perspectives of African American culture and the broader African Diaspora through master classes, panel discussions, and enlightening dialogues. The workshop will include dance classes exploring West Indian Folk, Afro Cuban traditional, and Contemporary Modern dance. "The dance workshop will give anyone a great opportunity to learn various dance forms and techniques that are not usually offered in the area of central Indiana. It is also about connecting, establishing new relationships and forging collaborations in the dance discipline with other dancers, teachers and performers," says African American Dance Company Director, Iris Rosa.

A panel discussion, free and open to the public, will take place Friday, March 6th at 7pm. The dance workshop's guest artists will lead a dialogue with the audience about their personal performing and teaching experience as well as answer questions. A dance showcase, featuring workshop highlights, is also free and open to the public and will be presented on Saturday, March 7th at 7:00 p.m. in the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center, Grand Hall.
