Aug 25, 2020 – Award-winning Dance Company, 3-D Dance Studios premiered a video devoted to black lives matter titled ‘Wade in the Water’ during its celebration of 20 years of service. ‘Wade in the Water’ which premiered on Sunday, the 23rd of August, 2020, is one of the pieces of a film titled ‘Makes You Stronger’.
With the corona virus causing 3-D Dance Studios to postpone its traditional annual recital, the company decided to pivot and create a film project instead. Students and parents of 3-D will be sharing their thoughts and addressing the falling economy throughout this project.
3-D Dance Studios’ mission is to encourage, empower and promote a healthy lifestyle through dance in order to help all children and adults reach for the stars and the moons. Our goal is to instill discipline and confidence in all individuals.
‘Wade in the Water’ was created out of a need to use art to address historical times especially after 3-D postponed its annual recital. The video is an original arrangement of the song that incorporates Negro spirituality with rap and African rhythms. Jazz violinist Regina Carter, singers Dornell Henriques and Taliek Hill, and Chantel Nicole feature in this video with a rap about the fallen victims of unjust killings. There’d be original music and choreography spiced up with dance genres ballet/pointe, tap, lyrical, hip hop, Afro beats, African and liturgical.
International World Renowned Award Winning jazz violinist, Regina Carter, and tapper extraordinaire Broadway bound Lamont Brown both contributed to this project to join in the conversation of Black Lives Matter.
‘Wade in the Water” was aired at 10AM on YouTube. The “Makes You Stronger” documentary will be completed this week.
