Black History Month Trilogy #2 – The Challenge to Defy Gravity
Travel back in time to the 1920’s Savoy Ballroom as music director Frank Owens and choreographer/ dance historian Mickey Davidson team up to present a dance experience like no other. Next on our Black History Month Trilogy (also known as African-American History Month), we are celebrating the gravity-defying contributions of Frankie Manning and Norma Miller known as The Lindy Hop and Air Steps. Coupled with swing music tributes once played at The Savoy Ballroom, you can take part in celebrating history with us.
Audiences will learn from Mickey Davidson dances from the swing era and history of African American Dances. Then they’ll get to put their new moves to practice as Frank Owens and a swing band transport us all to the 1920s through an unforgettable concert. Also joining the night will be the talented Theara J Ward, Music Director Patience Higgins, The Savoy Swingers, and Harvest Moon Hoppers.
See you on the dance floor!
