HIP HOP DANCE RESIDENCY WITH ANEKA MCMULLEN
William Kelley School
Monday January 22, 2018 - Thursday January 25, 2018
Aneka McMullen, dancer and educator, will engage students, grades four through six at Silver Bay’s William Kelley School in a Hip Hop Dance Residency, January 22-25. Parents and community members are invited to a performance of hip hop dance by students on January 25th at 1:15 p.m. in the auditorium.
As a music and dance form, hip hop is a fusion of rhythm and speech rooted in West African and African-American cultures. While rock-and-roll, soul, swing and later the go-go music are indebted to these early roots, hip hop, in its many iterations, is essentially the voice of people seeking freedom in all its dimensions.
