Shine by Sekou McMiller & Friends, in partnership with Jacob’s Pillow

Shine by Sekou McMiller & Friends, in partnership with Jacob’s Pillow, theater performance followed immediately with salsa dancing for all in the rotunda.

See the culmination of choreographer Sekou McMiller’s Jacob’s Pillow Lab creative residency in a work-in-process showing that celebrates the Afro, Latin, Jazz, and Soul Experience entitled Shine. Accenting partnered dances including salsa, mambo, and cha-cha-cha, “shines” are expressive sequences of footwork and body movements performed during musical breaks. Shine enhances the dance experience, inspiring friendly competition among social dancers. It explores how dancers separate to express their unique voices, fostering motivation and progress in everyday life, relationships, and communities. Featuring dancers, musicians, and composers brought together by McMiller, see performance highlights fusing music and dance, celebrating rhythmic nature, and uniting interconnected cultures. McMiller participates in a discussion moderated by Melanie George, Associate Curator, Jacob’s Pillow. Culminating the program is a social dance in the Guggenheim Rotunda for all to “shine”!

Leadership support for this Works & Process program is provided by Henry and Gerry Alpert.
