Stacy Letrice is a performer, choreographer, instructor, and dance/movement therapist from Chicago with over 20 years of experience in the field of dance. The workshop is open to any level of skill.
"Afro-Dancehall Fusion integrates traditional West African movement, Jamaican dancehall, and African pop culture dance styles — creating a colorful montage of dances of the Diaspora. Kenyon Alum and Chicago native Stacy Letrice coined the signature style, as it mirrors her extensive dance and performance background. Her credits include artists such as Serani, Elephant Man, Taurus Riley, Lady Patra, Les Twins, Tiwa Savage, MC Lyte and more.
"Participants will learn basic steps and technique and how to groove and flow. Then, they will apply those very movements to fun and lively choreography. In addition, participants will gain understanding of the fundamental similarities and differences between the various cultural styles while exploring individuality, confidence, body awareness, and passion. All levels are welcome!" (Gourier, 2017)
In addition to this workshop, Stacy will lead a discussion about the intersections of music, dance and womanhood on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 11:10 a.m. in the Community Foundation Theater.
This year, Black History Month events honor Kenyon's first two African American graduates, Stanley L. Jackson '52 and Allen B. Ballard Jr. '52. The events are sponsored by the Black Student Union, the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the Gund Gallery.
