Dancing in the Black experience transcends across the world from Duke Ellington's swing to break dancing in the upcoming 2024 Olympics.

The images displayed is a ongoing project from my "Blacana" project.

The opening set is from a stoop in Harlem, followed by New Jersey House Music, followed by a Juneteenth Celebration at American Dream and Hartz Plaza in Detroit. I invite all my photo friends to explore our dance culture. If you're near by one of the places, stop and make a story of it.
