Join Velocity Dance Center for the latest installment in their Speakeasy Series, The Color of Dance–History of Black Dance in Seattle. The community discussion will be led by Dani Tirrell, and the panel will consist of black dance artists currently working in Seattle. Learn about African-American dance history from the artists who created it.

From Velocity’s website:

THE SPEAKEASY SERIES is Velocity-curated, community-hosted, series of panel discussions, audience labs, show + tells, performance lectures, informal community conversations and/or other formats. Each speakeasy has a focus on provocative or timely issues including aesthetics, philosophy, or the intersection of dance and social justice.  The purpose of the Speakeasy Series is to encourage cross-disciplinary dialogue, promote civic engagement, create meaningful links between artists and communities, and support initiatives at the cutting edge of change.

This event is free and open to the public, and will include food provided by Chef Kristi Brown (That Brown Girl Cooks) and desserts by Marlon Brown (Bessie’s Cakes). Check out the Facebook event for more details.
