On Wednesday Dec. 9th, at 6:00 PM we invite you to join this FREE EVENT, presented on zoom. The Pan-Afrikan Center and the LGBTQIA+ Student Services are partnering to bring Brotherhood Dance.

Brotherhood Dance will facilitate mindfulness movement, discuss self-sustaining eco-system, and intersectionalities. The artist’s work Afro/Solo/Man, has TWO New York City Dance and Performance Bessie nominations for Outstanding Production & Outstanding Visual Design.

Brother(hood) Dance! is an interdisciplinary duo that seeks to inform its audiences on the socio-political and environmental injustices from a global perspective, bringing clarity to the same-gender-loving African-American experience in the 21st century. Brother(hood) Dance! was formed in April 2014 as a duo that research, create and perform dances of freedom by Orlando Zane Hunter, Jr. and Ricarrdo Valentine. Orlando is originally from Minneapolis but now resides in NYC with his partner and co-founder Ricarrdo Valentine.
