Sacred Sunday – Celebrating Black History Month with Jolyn Walker! (Virtual)

February 25 @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm UTC-4

The Sacred Dance Guild continues to offer Sacred Sunday experiences monthly – generally on the 2nd Sunday of the month and generally at 7:30 pm Eastern time! In the month of February we will have TWO Sacred Sunday evenings – Feb. 11th – the regular 2nd Sunday – and this special Black History Month session on Feb. 25th. A program that began during the pandemic and now continues because we CAN, not because we MUST! These sessions are intimate, interactive and information offerings that are free to the participants, gifted to the Sacred Dance Guild “village” by the presenter and coordinated by the SDG as a way to CONNECT us one to another! NOTE: time showing is Eastern – DO check time in your local time zone!!

To register send email to pres@sacreddanceguild.org with “Sacred Sunday with Jolyn” in the subject line. The Zoom link will be sent to you the day before the session.

Jolyn Walker, African dance instructor and has been teaching dance for over twenty years. She studied dance in Ghana and at Yale’s AfroAm African Dance studios.  Jolyn has shared her gift of traditional African dance steps instruction for over thirty years, mainly in Connecticut, New York and surrounding New England States.

This Sacred Sunday’s focus will infuse African dance steps to the soulful sound of Lizz Wright whose music is largely inspired by Sweet Honey in the Rock. Movements used will denote royalty and highlife celebratory steps. Celebrations such as honoring kings, queens, births, marriages and milestone birthdays.

Arrive on time, wear comfortable clothing, bring your drum, tambourines. Session will begin with a short introduction on traditional steps.

We are blessed to have Jolynn gifting us her presence with a generosity of spirit that flows through the Sacred Dance Guild village!
