Come to historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to explore how the people, music, and movement of our past currently reside in today’s urban dance landscape through the tradition bearers of Urban Artistry Inc. (www.urbanartistry.org). Working through the lens of an interdisciplinary urban dance education, students will become advocates of cultural preservation and artistic innovation as they discover dance, vocal, and instrumental traditions that have endured through America’s history of slavery, Civil War, and Civil Rights. Urban Artistry, Inc., is an internationally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the performance and preservation of art forms inspired by the urban experience. Serving as cultural ambassadors for communities that are often unsung, the group fulfills their mission through effective collaborations that support artists’ past, present, and future.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! New learners, experienced dancers, and musicians of all skill levels are invited to become part of a growing community that inclusively seeks to understand the American experience through music, dance, and dialogue. Each session will include discussions about social context, historical references, and cultural exchange.
