About Jamal Jackson Dance Company:
The mission of Jamal Jackson Dance Company is to translate the creative vision of Artistic Director Jamal Jackson into choreography and educational tools for use in performances, workshops, and community outreach that will teach people about the connection between African and American cultures. The company was founded in 2004 with the purpose of fusing various traditional African dance styles with modern and hip-hop techniques and diverse contemporary music styles in order to create a new, unique technique that is relevant to a multifarious community of Americans. The movement and storylines of JJDC choreography focus on re-defining ideas of community and blurring divisive lines, while still celebrating the beauty of individual cultures. Jackson has a strong desire to not only entertain and educate an audience, but to pass on dance to people of all ages, which he does through regular dance workshops throughout the year.
