Maymester Course: Black Dance
AAS 4970: Black Dance
From Bahia to Dakar, Cuba to Guinea, New York to Port of Spain, the rhythms of moving bodies signify and identify communities of people. In dancehalls, sacred spaces, and neighborhood yards people speak to one another through a vocabulary of hips, steps, twists, and breaks. This course examines the centrality of movements in the social, cultural, and spiritual practices of black populations across the world.
