Black Box Dance Theatre: Dance that MOVES!

A BBDT “school show” is quite an exciting event! Students will learn the history of modern dance and how it is one of the only art forms created in America. Repertory is selected to engage different ages and audience participation happens throughout the show. From rhythm and basketball, to learning about cultural practices such as Day of the Dead, to witnessing a soldier’s story…this is non-fiction, powerful dancing that truly MOVES!
