Discover Dance: Jamal Jackson Dance Company

Dec 12, 2018

Jamal Jackson Dance Company (JJDC) was founded in 2004 with the purpose of fusing traditional African dance styles with Modern techniques set to contemporary music.

The movement and storylines of JJDC choreography focus on redefining ideas of community and blurring divisive lines while celebrating the beauty of individual cultures.

The Temple, Burn it Down plays with the subtle contradiction of the body as a temple of art while also serving as a debilitating instrument that a dancer assiduously manipulates.

For K-5 students and teachers
