Gallery: Black Movements Dance Theatre In Motion
February 7, 2011 – The Black Movements Dance Theatre performed its Black History Month program at Georgetown on Feb. 4 and 5 at the Royden B. Davis Performing Arts Center.
The contemporary modern dance troupe, which was founded by African American students in 1981, selected works for the program that expressed emotion, struggle and beauty, according to student director Jasmine Morton (C'12).
“It’s about pressing forward – resilience, power and the ability to press through and come out on top,” she explains. “This is not just about dancing – this is supposed to be an experience that challenges you, and enables growth as an individual.”
