Created and conceived by performer, producer and dance writer Charmaine Warren, Black Dance Stories is a community working together to support a mission to uphold, highlight and celebrate Black creatives. The Black Dance Stories team includes Charmaine Warren, Kimani Fowlin and Nicholas Hall.

This month's artists include dancers who use their work to raise societal issues, strengthen community through their programming, and use history as a source of inspiration. Black Dance Stories launched on June 25, 2020, with internationally acclaimed tap dancer and choreographer Ayodele Casel and dancer, choreographer and founder of Company SBB Stefanie Batten Bland. Each session will be archived on the Black Dance Stories YouTube page.
