DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, the second show of Spectrum’s 2015/16 Season #RACEish, is a trio of dance works by artistic director Donald Byrd that underscores the Africanist Aesthetic in his pure dance works. Many (if not all) types of dance created in the United States are influenced by African aesthetic, even ones that are not considered African-American. This includes a distinct American style characterized by angularity, speed, and intensity. While, the African origin is often overlooked because of ignorance that exists due to institutionalized Racism.

Spectrum Dance Theater's 2015/16 Season #RACEish is a series of productions that boldly disrupt the current conversation around race a conversation that has become tinny, familiar, insular, limited, narrowed by political correctness, self-censored, afraid to offend and peopled by people that think alike.
