Dance Kings of Black Brooklyn at Kumble this Saturday

Dance Kings of Black Brooklyn
Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts

You won’t want to miss this special event honoring an important generation of Brooklyn’s Black male dancers and choreographers, who have served their communities and influenced younger dancers, including Obediah Wright, Baba Chuck Davis, Ron Brown, Jamel Gaines, Reggie Wilson, Michael Manswell, and Kevin “Shock-a-lock” Porter. They will be joined by protégés of their choosing for an evening that includes dances by the kings, a panel discussion, including Ella Moore and Lee “Ako” Thompson and a crowning moment.

This event is presented as part of Brooklyn Arts Council’s year-long initiative Black Brooklyn Renaissance: Black Art + Culture, 1960– 2010, sponsored by MetLife Foundation and presented in partnership with Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.
