Assemblies Explore Black History Through Dance

Assemblies Explore Black History Through Dance

On February 12, we welcomed The Pointe! Company and Technique Conservatory for assemblies exploring black history through dance. Each assembly opened with a presentation on the background and significance of Black History Month by the Upper School Student Diversity Leadership Council.

The Pointe! presented three pieces connected to black history. “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is a hymn celebrating thanksgiving, faithfulness, and freedom. “A Requiem for Four Little Girls” memorializes Denise McNair, Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, who were killed in a Birmingham church bombing in 1963. The final piece, Alvin Ailey’s “Revelations,” presents the historical African American experience from a church-inspired perspective.

Thank you to The Pointe! for sharing this joyful and inspiring performance with us!
