A Letter to Dancers from Adie San Diego

Welcome To The Dance

Dancer Adie San Diego shared this message for dancers on their Instagram profile:

“It is just as important to know about black dance pioneers like Master Juba, Josephine Baker, and Pearl Primus as much as we are taught to know famed white artists like Agnes de Mille, Bob Fosse, and Jerome Robbins.

It was only in the later years of my four year collegiate level dance program that my eyes were opened to the truth of the impact that black people and black dance made in dance education…MY dance education. And we were only able to scratch the surface on this vital information. So I admit, MY KNOWLEDGE IS LIMITED, but I am EAGER to learn more, as I’m sure you are too.”
