If You Really Wanna Party with Me...

"When I move, you move..." "I'm a savage, classy, bougie..." "Get jiggy with it..." "Now move your body like BOW!" "Let it rain, now clear it out... “ 

In our lives, dance and music go hand in hand.  Certain songs pull mannerisms, dance movements, and customs out of the people hearing the music. There are often regional variants of these movements; the connection and understanding between the DJ and the dancer are integral to the process. In this session, we will take you on a journey through the regions of Black social, club, dance, and music culture. Participants will learn DJ culture, foundational grooves, and jam/groove. We will end with a community Soul Train line/Soul Cypher from the comfort of your own home. Please wear comfortable clothes and make space around the computer to move and dance.

*This session is a healing space for BIPOC students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
