Rejoice! Diaspora Dance Theater will present their second full evening event, “Ancestry In Motion”.  This much anticipated event follows their break through premiere this past June, which consisted of three consecutive sold out shows.“Ancestry In Motion” connects the past to the present by exploring the African roots found in the modern movements of Jazz and House, and calls upon Yemaya, the African deity of the ocean, to address the continuing epidemic of police brutality. The evening includes world premiere choreographic works from Michael Galen, Dar Vejon Jones, and Jamie Minkus and features guest artists Okaidja Afroso and Rudy Slizewski.
