Dancing Black in Canada 1900 – 1970 and Now — BC Alliance for Arts + Culture
It’s About Time is a ground-breaking new exhibition that highlights the recorded dance histories of Canada’s Black population from 1900-1970.
Curated by scholar, artist, and educator Dr. Seika Boye, this exhibition offers insight into representations of Blackness and media reception of Black people dancing — from the dance floor to dance lessons, from the stage to public protests and activism.
Explore the exhibition to learn about the various artists, choreographers, dance forms, venues, geographic locations, cultural backgrounds and heritage, artistic visions, and community initiatives that make up the history of Black dancing in Canada.
