Camille A. Brown & Dancers
MONDAY, JANUARY 28
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Join Juel D. Lane and Timothy Edwards, company members of Camille A. Brown & Dancers (CABD), in this special workshop for men and boys of color on Monday, January 28, 2019. Through CABD’s community engagement platform, Every Body Move, the company is committed to engaging audiences and empowering communities through dance and dialogue. They pride themselves in not only presenting authentic performances, but also in creating safe spaces that foster collective learning and individual growth.
As part of their initiative – Black Men Moving – Juel and Tim will lead an interactive experience exploring healthy masculinity, movement, and creative action for Black boys and men. No dance experience required. The last segment of the workshop is devoted to discussion and reflection – real talk. Take a chance, make a move!
