Rooted in the African-American vernacular, this movement workshop celebrates the power of African-American social dance and its impact and influence on American dance forms throughout history. Using JUBA ("pattin juba") as a jumping off point, participants are taken on a social dance journey. From "the wing" to "the whip", attendees investigate the ways communities used movement as a way of protest, liberation, and/or healing. By learning about the past, it is Camille's hope that the spirit of expression through movement is embodied in our present day – providing the individual with a platform to celebrate their identity and to share their personal expression with the community of participants.
