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.
We aim to empower and support people of color
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 give a 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.
