Global Education Speaker Series Presents: Xclusive and the Therapeutic Qualities of African American Music
Springfield, Ohio - The Global Education and Peace Network invites community members to learn about the therapeutic qualities of African American music in a presentation by local dance group Xclusive at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 14, in Room 105 of the Joseph C. Shouvlin Center for Lifelong Learning, 737 N. Fountain Ave.
Xclusive’s members include LaJuan "Stepz" Dotts, Jacquan "Stylz" Brewton, Khalil Muwwakkil and Hashim "Trigger Stepzz" Stephens. Their program will involve hip-hop dance, gospel dance and a discussion of the ways this music can be therapeutic. Dessert will be available at no charge.
Xclusive describes itself as “a local dance team that loves to show up and show out. Inspired by great dancers such as Les Twins, Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and many others, we take our individuality and unite it with structure, precision, style and discipline. From free-styling, pop-locking, b-boying, and body waving, we challenge ourselves every day with no limit to what we can do.”
The Global Education and Peace Network began with City led Study Circles in October 2001 after the September 11 tragedy. With a goal of building global awareness in Springfield and Clark County, in the past twelve years, the group has created 48,000 Global Education calendars and held 132 monthly programs educating about local and global cultures. Those who attend will receive a free 2013-2014 Global Education calendar featuring the series and other community events.
