Michele Byrd-McPhee will be joined by guest artist LaTasha Barnes for a virtual conversation. Barnes is an internationally recognized and awarded dancer, and educator and will talk about various dance forms and her research.
Barnes performs and competes in these cultural traditions: House, Hip-Hop, Waacking, Vernacular Jazz, and Lindy Hop. Besides performing in the International Lindy Hop Championships and the Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival, she collaborates with many artists and organizations. Her performance and research bridges the gap between communities of practice and academic cultural dance research, performance, and preservation.
