Dance Floor As A Sacred Space

  • Camaradas 2241 1st Avenue New York, NY, 10029 United States (map)

Sometimes we pray with our feet. We move to a rhythm that feels tenderly familiar, stirring up memories of our loved ones and our people. How can we understand the ancient and the contemporary? What does it mean when we take the bembe to the museum? Can we square the rigor of the academy with the intentions of parties to curate multifaceted spaces? How do we continue to honor the families and networks that are created with respect?

Join us as we gather to active the topics discussed in the community conversation on The Dance Floor As Sacred Space as a part of the Ancestors in Training series at the Caribbean Cultural Center.
