when Black men dance...

A Nance Dance Collective is a project-based initiative that brings together communities of Black men throughout the African Diaspora in order to produce choreographic works that narrate the multifarious stories  of Black manhood.  Artist and scholar, C. Kemal Nance, PhD dedicates his artistic inquiries to research that centralizes the Black male dancing body.  Nance's art and scholarship uses contemporary African dance forms to explore constructions of race, gender, and masculinities as they pertain to the unique discourse of being Black and male.



What's good?

C. Kemal Nance's dance documentary, 'Deez Nuts! : Black Bodies Dancing Defiance' has been selected for the 2020 Top Shorts Film Festival
