Dance Caribbean COLLECTIVE (DCC) in partnership with BKSD will present Expanding Tradition: Diaspora Dance series that will include 4 events: three masterclasses and one film night + community conversation. Each class will be a collaborative effort, co-taught by two dance artists, pairing a traditional Caribbean Dance form with a more contemporary Dance style. The DCC film night will screen a set of interviews from dance gurus from various caribbean islands and create space for community dialogue about the future of DCC to facilitate exchanges between traditional and contemporary forms of Caribbean art and culture within Brooklyn.
Event Fee: $5.00 w/RSVP $10 at the door
