NCCAkron Dancing Conversation: Black Male Choreographers

Join five Black choreographers from across the country for a conversation on racial identity, masculinity, dance making, resistance, and finding definitions of artistic success.

Join NCCAkron this spring for our series of Dancing Conversations! These free public events locate dance among broader topics and offer an opportunity to demonstrate the aesthetic range within the dance field.
