Urban Jazz Dance
"Dancing has shown me that people can reach their dreams, even people with disabilities. Dancing is a way to express oneself, a way to communicate. As a person, who is deaf, I have found dance is a way to communicate with both hearing and the deaf world."  Antoine Hunter

Shawl-Anderson Dance Center's Dance Up Close/East Bay series is proud to present Urban Jazz Dance under the direction of Antoine Hunter for just four performances August 19 & 20 and 26 & 27 at 8pm in Berkeley, California.

Oakland-based Urban Jazz Dance is a convergence of artistic forces, where raw energy, rooted in freedom and syncopation is expressed through athleticism, lyrical flow, and high-energy movement.

A proud member of both the African-American and Deaf/Hard of Hearing communities, Mr. Hunter and his company will present works that integrate jazz dance with ballet, modern, hip hop, African and American Sign Language.

Tickets are $15-18 and a special VIP Benefit Party will follow the show on Saturday, August 27th. Benefit tickets are $35 and include the show and after-party.

Guest artist Fred Michael Beam will be joining Hunter and his company for the second weekend of performances. Mr. Beam founded the award-winning, non-profit organization known as Invisible Hands, Inc., which promotes Deaf culture awareness through art and entertainment (

Seating is limited to 60 audience members per show, so advance purchase of tickets is strongly suggested.
