POA Finale - An Evening of Multi-Cultural Dance

Back to Events Page

Join us as we end another amazing year with a unique evening of dance. The Latin Ballet of Virginia (LBV) and Ezibu Muntu African Dance Company will bring their unique culturally influenced styles and companies to entertain and enlighten you. Both companies are based in Richmond and reflect the exceptional depth, variety, and diversity of our arts and culture community.

From the passionate fury of flamenco to tango’s forbidden heat, the polished elegance of classical ballet to the earthen power of modern dance, the Latin Ballet of Virginia uses the expressive beauty of movement to weave the tales and traditions that are the heart and soul of Hispanic culture. The Latin Ballet of Virginia (LBV) combines technical excellence with a soulful depth of emotion and an unwavering commitment to education, diversity and accessibility.

Ezibu Muntu African Dance and Cultural Foundation is a professional organization of dancers, drummers, entertainers and other individuals dedicated to invoking a better educated positive understanding of African culture, values, traditions and cultural arts as a whole. Through exposing the community-at-large to educational and artistic programming based on African culture and art forms, Ezibu Muntu hopes to enrich the diversity of the community and reintroduce basic African concepts of family and community into society.

2017 Youth Peace Summit

  • St. Paul's Baptist Church

Here’s a post with details: http://www.rpec.org/propose-a-workshop-for-2017-youth-peace-summit/

90 Minute workshop (times to be announced)

Richmond Youth Peace Summit, Saturday, April 29, 2017  Call for Workshop Proposals:

 We invite you to share your knowledge, skills and experiences with Richmond area teens.

The Richmond Peace Education Center will hold its 2017 Youth Peace Summit on Saturday April 29, 2017, at St. Paul’s Baptist Church–Southside Campus, 700 E Belt Blvd., Richmond, VA 23223.   The summit will feature 90-minute breakout workshops for groups of about 12-15 teen participants. Morning workshops will be scheduled from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Afternoon workshops are scheduled from 2 -3:30 p.m. We invite you to propose a workshop to offer at the event.

The summit will emphasize cooperation and collaboration among Metro Richmond’s diverse populations of young people. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals focused on: youth community organizing; reducing gun violence; juvenile justice reform; Black/Latino and interracial unity; racial justice in Richmond; Richmond’s rich African-American history; building healthy relationships; Spoken word poetry or other arts for social change; and increasing educational and economic opportunities for metro Richmond youth.

Proposals promoting teen leadership, or positive self-expression through the arts are also welcome. In past years, sessions on performing arts, writing, cooking and improvisational comedy have generated strong interest among participants. All workshops should be be active and participatory.

To promote youth leadership, presenters are  encouraged to include young people as leaders or co-leaders for each workshop. (We may be able to identify a youth co-leader from among our RYPP members if you are unable to recruit one.)
