Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month to honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities. This year, the theme is “Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build”. The DJD organization owes gratitude and pays an abundance of respect to Black Culture and the African-American experience both of which are the architects of jazz dance. In the final weeks of Black History Month we will be offering classes lead by Black artists who are a part of our community. We invite you to participate in these classes and all revenues from the drop in fees will go directly to Calgary Black Chambers, an organization whose objectives are to initiate scholarships and mentoring opportunities for Black students to further their postsecondary education, training and professional development.


Classes are $25 each or any active DJD pass will be valid.
