Tomorrow I have the honor of speaking on this panel along with the Legendary and Original Soul Train Dancers. They will be speaking on their stories and their experiences, and I was invited by Damita Jo Freeman to speak as a representation of the current and future generation of street dancers. Specifically I will be speaking on my own personal experience and how Soul Train and its era influenced me in my own dance journey, and how it has influenced street dance worldwide.
Please come hear these legendary figures speak, this is a VERY RARE occurrence- You may recognize one or two of these names if you are a Locker (e.g. Skeeter Rabbit, Alpha, Slim the Robot), but there are SO MANY MORE from Soul Train that are part of this very large picture!!! (All of the names on the flyer minus mine were on Soul Train) and Flo Jenkins, the moderator, was the editor of Right On! magazine in the 70s as well as a Soul Train dancer.
Come get your history, hear NEVER BEFORE TOLD stories!!!,
AND you just might get to go down the Soul Train Line 😉 with them as well! (Peep: If you are there, you WILL be in the Soul Train line)
SUN FEB 24th @ 5 PM

The historic Soul Train television show has influenced multi-generations since it first aired more than 40 years ago. Unfortunately, most of the fans of the show have no idea what it was really like being a dancer on that show. The dancers who created dance and fashion styles that continue to influence youths worldwide have basically been publicly voiceless. Why? Those answers we don’t fully know so “Giving Voice to the Soul Train Dancers©” is long overdue. It will provide an interested public an opportunity to reminisce, ask questions and hear interesting, never-before-told, behind-the-scenes fun stories. At this event, attendees will partake of history. They will see the impact of the Soul Train dancers, in addition to participating in the finale – the famous Soul Train dance line. .
