Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet Dance Theatre and Deeply Rooted Dance Theater perform in “Legacy”
Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet Dance Theatre and Deeply Rooted Dance Theater to perform in “Legacy” Friday and Saturday, September 13 and 14 at BAM Fisher, 321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn.
Premiering in 1996, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DRDT) is rooted in traditions of modern, contemporary and African dance, as well as storytelling, in universal themes that spark a visceral experience and ignite an emotional response in diverse audiences worldwide. Collaborating with nationally renowned choreographers across the spectrum of modern, ballet and African dance, DRDT presents work that reflects eclectic voices in contemporary life.
DRDT Co-founder and Artistic Director Kevin Iega Jeff founded his first company, JUBILATION! Dance Company, in New York City in 1982 out of a need to provide a forum for African-American artists to be engaged holistically in the arts—spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially and economically.
