The Lu Lu Washington dance Theatre will present a children's performance at MCCC on Friday, Feb. 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the Science Center Theater, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. Tickets are $5. For more information and to order tickets, visit www.mc3.edu/livelyarts or call 215-641-6518.
The Theatre's Reflections in Black program gives children an awareness of African-American history and culture. Washington also introduces students to different dance styles. She narrates each performance and engages students in call- and-response exchanges. She brings students on stage to demonstrate or learn movements as part of the show where dancers perform short excerpts showing a wide range of dance idioms. Washington presents a “dance styles demonstration.” The performance usually includes one or more works or excerpts from the company’s touring repertoire, a trip on the Underground Railroad with Harriet Tubman, and an audience quiz on African-American history.
