Momentum will celebrate the Harlem Renaissance by engaging more than 1,000 central Ohio children in dance, music and performance during their weekly, in-school Momentum classes throughout the 2018-19 school year. During July 2018, 100 of Momentums advanced dancers will attend a two-week intensive. There they will learn original dances that tell the story of the Harlem Renaissance, hear from guest speakers on the topic and design period costumes and scenery. The summer intensive will culminate with a free, 30-minute performance open to the public at the John F. Wolfe Columbus Commons Stage on Thursday, July 26 at 5:30pm. This performance will serve as inspiration for the grand, hour-long spring performances given by more than 1,000 Momentum dancers at the Davidson Theatre in downtown Columbus for capacity audiences.
