Houston Jazz Dance Festival

April 12, 2018

Houston is holding an event called the Houston Jazz Dance Festival, celebrating the social dance traditions of African-Americans, Africans and people of color.

First off, if you haven’t heard about it, you should check it out. I am very excited such an event exists.

Second off, Swungover is donating *two free weekend passes* to the event. If you know someone —like a young dancer, perhaps— who would love to go but maybe can’t justify the cost, please email robertwhiteiii @ gmail.

We are very sad to be missing the event, but are excited to help someone else experience it. Thank you organizer Tena Morales-Armstrong for your amazing leadership.

    I’m really excited to be going to this event! Before this, I’d never heard of an all POC-run jazz dance weekend, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about it. Looking forward to learning and dancing and meeting new people and just feeling what that space is like. Thanks for supporting dancers who might not otherwise be able to go!
