Uprooted – The Journey of Jazz Dance
Uprooted - The Journey of Jazz Dance explores the history, lineage and future progressions of jazz dance.
The story of jazz dance is a complex one as it goes to the very heart of humanity. It is a story of triumph over adversity, oppression and privilege as well as a celebration. Because ultimately, what all people have in common is rhythm and a basic human need to get down. The film aims to not only educate people about jazz dance’s lineage and history, but also to inspire the dancer of tomorrow to keep this art form alive.
