The Breman in conjunction with the Ballethnic Dance Company has commissioned a series of dances based on the works of the prominent artists featured in A Jazz Memoir: The Photography of Herb Snitzer. Join us for a night of dance for the cost of donation. Any size donation will grant you access to the event, as little as 1 cent or as much as you like.
 
The piece called 'Jazzing: Memoirs in Jazz' is inspired by the photo exhibition and discussions with Herb about his experience, particuarly with Jazz artists and navigating through life with these musical geniuses during racial inequity and the Civil Rights Movement. 
 
The Ballethnic Dance company is one of only 3 black ballet companies in the US, and the founders, Waverly T. Lucas II and Nena Gilreath, were dancers with the original Black ballet company, Dance Theatre of Harlem. They came here and built a company. They own a studio in East Point.
