The beauty of the human body in motion is best expressed through dance, just as the beauty of a banana cream pie is best expressed across a sad clown’s face. Witness the aesthetic potential of locomotion with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one ticket to see the Black Dance Festival at the August Wilson Center for African American Culture (a $25 value). Groupon buyers will be seated in the best available section at the time of purchase. Choose from the following performances:

  • Friday, November 4, at 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 5, at 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 6, at 3 p.m.<p>

The Black Dance Festival unites preeminent African-American dance troupes for mesmerizing performances of rhythmic motion. Friday’s show features the hip-hop styling of Philadelphia-based Rennie Harris Puremovement as well as the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, known for dazzling audiences and angering carpet salesmen with their elaborate rug cutting. On Saturday and Sunday, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater gyrates through a mélange of traditional African dance and classical forms, and the Ailey II troupe brims with youthful energy. The August Wilson Center’s resident dance ensemble will join guest groups at all three performances, executing fancy footwork and toe bench presses amid the venue’s 486 seats and clean, modernist lines.

August Wilson Center for African American Culture

Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the August Wilson Center commands a striking architectural confidence. Its two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the bravado of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat. Within the steal and glass, a 486-seat theater hosts plays, dance performances, and lectures while multiple exhibition galleries display art and cultural treasures for the community. The center draws on the legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania, infusing each curation with a celebration of rich history.
