In April, The Kentucky Center ArtsReach produced DANCE OUT LOUD, a public celebration of dance featuring Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project from NYC, along with performances by Keen Dance Theatre, The ArtsReach Dance Ensemble, D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. Dance Company, Safiyyah Rasool's students from Shively Community Center, and Genesis Arts dance students from Shawnee Arts and Cultural Center. Dawne Gee hosted the event. All performance groups are rooted in the community and rehearse in neighborhood sites.
Performances addressed issues of great significance such as bullying, police violence against communities of color, faith, keeping Dr. King’s legacy alive, and strengthening African American communities through social justice movements.
We hope you can join us in The Kentucky Center’s Bomhard Theater on May 20 at 4pm for the annual ArtsReach Showcase presented by The Norton Foundation. No tickets are required for this free public performance. Hosted by comedian Keith McGill, the ArtsReach Showcase features over one hundred dancers and instrumentalists who study and rehearse throughout the year at ArtsReach community center sites.
