Madison Mondays: Conversation with LaTasha Barnes

October 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Interdisciplinary Artist-in Residence Michele Byrd-McPhee will be joined by guest artist LaTasha Barnes for a virtual conversation. Barnes is an internationally recognized and awarded dancer, and educator and will talk about various dance forms and her research.
Barnes performs and competes in these cultural traditions: House, Hip-Hop, Waacking, Vernacular Jazz, and Lindy Hop. Besides performing in International Lindy Hop Championships and the Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival, she collaborates with many artists and organizations. Her performance and research bridges the gap between communities of practice and academic cultural dance research, performance, and preservation.
This event is free and open to the public, and will be recorded. Zoom link coming soon, and will be streamed to @uwmadisonarts on Facebook and Instagram.
