Video Title:
A History of Urban Dance: Urban Artistry performs for the Will to Adorn
Description:
The performances of Urban Artistry, an international collective of artists and dancers, reveal how street culture aligns music and dance with dress. Members are educators as well as performers, and operate with the idea that culture is not stagnant, but rather is alive and breathing, built on the legacy of past innovators. In this performance at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival the troupe took an historical look at urban dance. Videography by John Wetmore and David Barnes Editing by Charles Weber
