British dance: Black routes

Event type:
Location: International Slavery Museum, Dock Traffic Office, Albert Dock, Liverpool Waterfront, Liverpool L3 4AX

There is a variety of different dance forms practiced in Britain today, such as jazz, contemporary, ballet, hip-hop and African People’s Dance. Some of these have come to Britain along the many different routes taken by the families of today’s Black British citizens, many of whom came from the Caribbean in the late 1940s and 50s.

This exhibition explores the experiences of Black British dancers from 1946 to 2005 and highlights their contributions to British dance.
