Time: 5:00pm October 11
Admission: Free to UH Hilo/HCC faculty, staff and students, and their guests
Where We Danced is the story of America's dance told through the lives of the dancers who shaped the art form as well as the places they danced. The story begins on the plantations where African and Western European culture collided to create America's first truly indigenous social dance, the cakewalk. It continues through to 1930’s Harlem showing how dance helped shape popular culture in America and around the world.
This documentary contains one of the last filmed interviews with Frankie Manning, taken just months before he passed in 2009. He was one of the most iconic and influential dancers of the 20th century.
