Legacy is about having a voice that speaks to all people in a thought-provoking way to share spirituality, art, healing, and cultural empowerment. The African-American experience gives us a voice to continue our work, our ‘legacy,’ through art. Learning our history through art builds greater relationships and self-discipline that serves as a welcome reminder of personal growth.” —Jamel Gaines, Founder/Director of Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet

Join us for a shared evening featuring dancers cultivated and nurtured through Deeply Rooted Dance Theater and Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet. Legacy is a collaboration of artists inspired by JUBILATION! Dance Company’s mission, established in Brooklyn during the 1980s and 90s.
