Welcome to Dancing in Dark Skin! My name is Ciara and I am the creator of this groundbreaking community. I created Dancing in Dark skin in 2014 after my first year at Spelman College as a way to express my voice in the dance world. I have many experiences where I am the only dark face in a dance class and I wanted to create a home for black dancers to unite when at times we may feel like “the only”. Even when in a room of black dancers it is possible to still feel like “the only”. We aim to embrace individuality within to feel a since of confidence in any community you enter.
Dancing in Dark Skin is for everyone to enjoy! On our website, Youtube channel and our Intagram page you will find dance pictures galore, new dance choreography, theatre and dance reviews, different types of inspirational literature, and any and everything to expand your views on the arts.
