Explore Afrofuturism through the tradition of dance, let your creativity connect to your knowledge, your history and your movement as you journey through various dance styles that map a rich history onto a current urban style.

Afro-contemporary dance is rooted in collective space sharing its gestures informed by dances of the Diaspora and movements from Africa and the Caribbean.

The first two sessions (Feb 5 and 12) are led by award-winning dancer, choreographer and cultural knowledge keeper Kevin Ormsby. Participants will learn dance styles and understand how movements of the African Diaspora continue to shape popular culture today including Hip Hop and Urban dance.

The third session (Feb 26) celebrates the vibrant and expressive style of urban and Hip Hop dance. It's led by Mark Samuels who has worked with top tier Canadian artists including Jully Black and Nelly Furtado. He has also danced in many notable shows including The Juno AwardsMMVA’s and So You Think You Can Dance Canada.
