History Of Black Dance In America Part 2

Please join dancer, choreographer, and dance historian Ron Parker as he continues with Part II of “The History of Black Dance in America”. This second part focuses on dances that were created or became popular in the latter half of the 20th Century, dances like Bop, Mambo, Tango, Salsa, Hip Hop as well as many popular fad dances of the 1960s through the 1980s. We also delve into the histories of the popular Afro-centric dances that emerged from this period such as Urban Cha-Cha, Urban Ballroom, Chicago Style Step, and Kizomba. The history of Black dance is, quite simply, the history of American popular dance.
