I Am BLACK DANCE

 


KIERSTYN ZAYKOSKI
The Kaleidoscope Dance Theatre/New York Institute of Dance and Education
Director of Operations

As mentioned at the 2019 Annual International Conference and Festival of Blacks in Dance in Dayton, OH, IABD has launched the international campaign, I AM BLACK DANCE | I AM IABD. It is Denise’s hope and vision to raise awareness and bring visibility to our community - our way. "As a community, IABD has become stronger generation after generation. We should never forget the shoulders that we stand on; those who were and continue to be groundbreaking and revolutionary. This campaign is a time to reflect and honor our achievements and culture, to celebrate our community and its bright future ahead. Let’s ensure that the Black Dance narrative remains ours! We will celebrate our pioneers and our possibilities. We will shatter every stereotype and celebrate our inspirations, which have led to our aspirations, and ultimately our achievements."
~ Denise Saunders Thompson, President/CEO
