Do you know Baltimore Club Dance? This amazing mini-doc sheds a little light on the culture that birthed this dance style, it's cultural relevance, it's beauty and it's power. SPIN published a story about Baltimore Club dance, the genre from which Cumbe's BMore Afro House class originates. The story highlights the history and culture of the dance style. Check out an excerpt here: 

Baltimore club is a brash and raucous style of dance music that originated in the city of its name about three decades ago. In 2018, the many of the actual clubs that nurtured the music have shut down, and the genre’s moment in the national spotlight is behind it, but the people who keep it alive are still going. “There’s no real space that incubates this genre,” says standout producer TT the Artist in a new short Baltimore club documentary. “When there were no more outlets,” adds a club promoter who goes by Uneek, “We created the outlet.”
