A visionary. A cultural icon. The “matriarch and queen mother of black dance”. All of this and more describes dancer and choreographer Katherine Dunham.

Ashkenaz celebrates her legacy with an evening of community dance, storytelling, and performance. Come and try an Introduction to Dunham Technique led by Eyla Josie Moore. Then Danielle Hall will share her reflections on the Life and Legacy of Ms. Dunham followed by historic video footage. The evening will culminate with a special performance by the renowned dance company Rara Tou Limen.

Come and join us on the 108th occasion of her birthday!
