2021 Sacramento Dance Sampler (Festival of the Arts)
April 10, 16 & 18 (viewable through 4/30)
This 10th Anniversary Season is dedicated to the memory of Jory Horn (1991-2019). Jory may have left too soon but his abundance of creativity and dedication to the art of dance continues to inspire us all. Fifty percent of the ticket price will help establish the Jory Horn Memorial Scholarship for aspiring dancers at Sacramento State.
The mission of the Sacramento Dance Sampler is to foster community growth by providing a platform to showcase the works of emerging and established professional dance artists and to expose audiences to the growing dance culture in our region. Founded by Lorelei Bayne in Sacramento in 2011, this annual event is modeled after New York City’s, Symphony Space Dance Sampler. The goal this year is to bring together acclaimed professional area dance companies for a virtual celebration of dance!
Sacramento Dance Sampler is scheduled to showcase April 10th, 16th and 18th as part of the Sacramento State, College of Arts and Letters, Festival of the Arts (FOTA) week-long celebration April 5th-11th, 2021.

**ENCORE** S/BAD 2021: Thrive
On Demand April 30 - May 2
In anticipation of Sacramento/Black Art of Dance’s 30th anniversary, we are presenting an encore of S/BAD: Thrive!, our first virtual concert.
Sacramento/Black Art of Dance has a rich history of highlighting narratives and cultural practices from across the African diaspora. It also continues to provide opportunity for emerging and established artists to connect to and to perpetuate these legacies.
It is our hope to name a scholarship fund in honor of Founding Director, Professor Emerita Dr. Linda Goodrich to support our ongoing efforts to support artists of color and those with a desire to study Black Dance.
