“What is Jazz”: Jazz, African American Culture and Collective identity

19/11, 20.00 - 21.30 @Rhythm Hoppers Studio

“What is Jazz” open discussion group is a Rhythm Hoppers initiative aimed at exploring Jazz dances beyond the scope of in-classroom instructing and social dancing.

Through open discussions, screenings and lectures the project invites all members of the community to delve deeper and explore what is Jazz, what is there to learn from it and how to give back.

During our first meeting on Sunday we are going to:
1. Introduce the project
2. Share a brief overview of the profound influence of African American culture on the development of jazz
3. Highlight the importance of understanding this cultural heritage in the context of collective identity
