ABOUT OUR MISSION

Roots In Revolution aims:
- To explore ways in which multiple culture can intersect through dance;

- To increase public awareness of and exposure to traditional dance forms;

- To be advocates for cultural diversity in the professional dance world; and

- To encourage greater integration of folk/traditional dances at academic institutions.
ABOUT THE COMPANY

Roots In Revolution is comprised of women with diverse experiences and dance influences.  Our work is "multilingual", seamlessly blending influences from traditional/folkoloric dance forms - djembe, sabar, kutiro, samba, bomba and Afro-Cuban – with more contemporary technique – modern, hip-hop and jazz.  Our repertoire addresses many issues affecting women as well as issues of political and social importance in contemporary society.
