This Sunday the weekly program, Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan, continues:
This week on Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan features an Interview with Junious Brickhouse, a leader in the field of hip-hop diplomacy, founder and director of Urban Artistry, and director of Next Level. Tune into Battery Dance TV at 9 a.m. and 12 noon EDT on Sunday, July 12th to hear about his journey.
“We have so much to learn from Junious, a dancer from an early age who served abroad in the U.S. Military on his pathway to becoming one of America’s leading cultural diplomats.” “Hip-hop has become the most popular genre of art among youth around the world and Junious has shared hip-hop in far-flung places such as Cameroon, Bolivia, Myanmar and Egypt, while also following a deeply personal quest for discovering his family’s roots in the American South and the Transatlantic slave trade,” said Mr. Hollander.
At 2 p.m., take a hip-hop class with Battery Dance Company member, Hussein Smko.
Later in the day at 4 p.m, watch a beautiful solo performance by Curaçao-based choreographer/dancer Reuel Rogers from the 38th annual Battery Dance Festival.
