About this Event

“Roaring and Soaring: Black Persistence--- A Celebration of Black History and Hope through Dance” will be presented by Eleone Dance Theatre at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at the Painted Bride Arts Center, 250 Vine St., Philadelphia, PA 19106. Eleone Dance Theatre, a Philadelphia-based professional dance company, has been co-directed by Mr. Shawn-Lamere Williams and Ms. Sheila A. Ward since 1998. It was founded by E. Leon Evans, II in 1995.

Eleone uses Black History Month to present a multi-media journey through dance highlighting historical and relevant themes that chronicle Black Experiences in America. This year's theme, “Roaring and Soaring: Black Persistence,” highlights the first African American female pilot, Bessie Coleman, and the progression of African Americans during the roaring 20's and Jazz Age.

This exciting educational and entertaining performance will feature period choreography and diverse music by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and today’s current artists. This show is designed to appeal to all ages. We thank you in advance for your support of Eleone Dance Theatre and the cast of “Roaring and Soaring: Black Persistence--- A Celebration of Black History and Hope through Dance.”
