Blacka’s World: Get Your Dance on with Yaminah Legohn

August 8, 2014

Words by Blacka Di Danca


Itโ€™s been a while since Iโ€™ve had the chance to write a โ€œBlackaโ€™s Worldโ€ column here on LargeUp but I promise I will be updating you on my work more often. Recently Iโ€™ve been teaching weekly online dancehall courses for free on my YouTube channel, planning my upcoming fall tour, opening up stage shows like LargeUpโ€™s Chronixx SummerStage event in Central Park, choreographing music videos and creating new dance moves! I may have been quiet, but Iโ€™ve definitely been busy! Today I have an opportunity for all dancers in or around NYC! And whatโ€™s the point of an opportunity, if you donโ€™t share it?

This Saturday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, renowned NYC-via-LA choreographer (andย Fiyah Dancehall Theater collaborator) Yaminah Legohn will be holding dance auditions for her dance company Art of Legohn in New York City. The auditions will take place at PMT Dance Studios located at 69 14th street, 3rd floor, in Manhattan.
