All stars of the dance world come together to celebrate dance, music & American history. This event honors the legacy of African American artists such as Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, Prince, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, Phife Dawg & Maya Angelou.

Former soloists with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Martha Graham Company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, & over 40 Broadway shows, perform beautifully crafted pieces to iconic songs by these artists.

Using dance and music to teach and celebrate African American history, the power of dancers in their 40's & 50's uplift, inspire, and create a can't sit still in your seat celebration of who we are as Americans that will have you singing to yourself for weeks.
