The Legacy Continues...

Thanks to our passionate and dedicated PGPCS Dance Photographer Rodney Rice Jr. we have some glimpses from the evening of Dance Our Legacy. Audience from the showcase are eagerly awaiting the next endeavor from us and the amount of support and interest in donating to the scholarship fund is humble, yet generous-- a true testament to the caliber of work that was shown. The International Association of Blacks in Dance Board Member, Carol Foster was buzzing through the week with how impressed she was stating, "...the Legacy, is definitely in good hands." Here are a few moments captured of Ms. Foster giving the Directors some energy, character and LIFE as she enters the stage during the Q+A.


It was a pleasure to have this DC Dance Veteran join us for an evening of Excellence--celebrating all of those who cam before us to make an our passion and purpose in dance a Lifelong endeavor. 

We've not stopped short of Excellence at the stage...

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance.

However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

The Streets of the Caribbean, A Traveling Black Woman

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” -  Ibn Battuta . Trinidad & Tobago really out did themselves with the Design and Set-up of Carifesta XIVp particularly at the Grand Stand in Queens Park. Whether you were entering through the side gates as personnel and staff or to meander through the welcome gate...there was a scenic route and display of color and culture all around. When you first enter in, you are greeted by mock flight attendants in side of the cabin of a plane, upon exiting the archway is there for picture taking with avenue signs name after the representing countries and islands. There is a vintage cobblestone Victorian town accompanied by colorful Cuban style houses with movie scene revolving lights--really making for the fun and magic of this reunion. There was much to see, do, taste and experience. The marketplace carried dishes from Haiti, Guyana, Guadelope and more, taking locals on a sensory trip off shores and pulling
