Black Lives Matter – Empowerment Dance Workshops

As part of the 2017 Black Lives Matter Month House of Melody , MIK FAM, ONE VIBE came together to share Empowerment and create a awareness of intercultural sensitivity through dance.

Social artistic expression has always been important in African and African American traditions and created a kind of collective identity, especially in black marginalized communities. Dance can channel an emotion, communicate a message and create a social structure which is based on ancient traditions, movements and rhythms and until today supports individual identity and plays a great role in many communities.

House of Melody , M.I.K. Family, ONE VIBE individually act as Rolemodels and have successfully managed to make their passion to their profession and build community’s which supports individual creativity. In the two hour intensive crew Workshops we’ll give an insight in different Afro Based Dance Styez, Hip Hop / Krump & Voguing and delivers the importance of a community and exchange that connects through dance & music.

3 Dance Workshops at motion*s

The Workshops are open for everybody who has has a passion for dance and wants get to know dances that have been expression for many oppressed POC in the past/present.  We hope to connect & engage more POC with the existing Urban, Voguing & Afro Dance related Dance Communities in Berlin.
