Just in time for Black History Month and the 150th Anniversary of Juneteenth (the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States), Central Avenue Dance Ensemble's latest show, The History of Black Dance in America, is a multimedia dance concert that showcases the contributions of African-Americans to popular American social dance from slavery to the modern era. With a mission to promote American vernacular dances of the 20th century, the Central Avenue Dance Ensemble explores how American vernacular dances were influenced by traditional African dance and shaped by spirituality and slavery. This all-ages performance is presented at the El Camino College Center for the Arts, and features authentic renditions of dances such as Zulu, cakewalk, Shim Sham, the Lindy hop and more.
