Camille A. Brown & Friends

Camille A. Brown has partnered with several dance teachers with expertise in social dance forms to create this FREE, inter-generational event, which includes a day of free workshops facilitated by Camille A. Brown and renowned teachers!

Hip Hop Dance Party Moves: Quilian Matthew 

African Dance: Catherine Foster
For centuries the evolution of African dance, history, and culture have all played an intricate role in how communities are shaped in the world. Come experience a journey through modern and traditional dance styles of the African Diaspora while creating our very own community right on the dance floor!

40s Dance: Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards

Locking: Adesola Osakalumi
This class will explore the freedom, style and athletic energy of this dynamic style, created during the late 60s/early 70s by Don Campbell and prominently featured on Soul Train. Incorporating social dances, "the lock", points, lots of improvisation and personality in the class, "we be a funky, good time!"

Social Dance for Social Change: Maleek Washington & Tim Edwards
This class will look at the power of social dance through the ages past and
present. Getting an understanding of its lineage, its importance and its purpose through movement.

Hip Hop and African Culture Nuances: Duane Lee Holland Jr.
This class will utilize the style of House, as the foundation to crafting
a combination. Within the process we will reinforce history and terminology of Hip-Hop culture and practice.

Black Men Moving: Desmond Seymour
"Dance and Distribute" is an exercise where we combine expressions from individuals to groups into one coherent physical expression. Movement from micro to macro!

Outside of the dance workshops, attendees will be able to participate in an interactive lunch circle discussion with Dance Professor, Jasmine Thompson, which provides a safe space for everyone to discuss what they have learned at Every Body Move!


"Every Body Move was created to encourage everyone to connect to their body because I believe there's power in personal movement. Movements of the African Diaspora tell stories about the past, help us to live in the present, and provide a path to the future. To enter into the 4th year of this event is both motivating and humbling. I can't wait for the community to experience this,"
- Camille A. Brown
