Sacramento/Black Art of Dance celebrates its 10th anniversary at California State University, Sacramento with the retrospective Praise: Past Present and Future at 8 p.m., Oct. 9 - 11 and 16 - 18, in Solano Hall 1010.

S/BAD founder and CSUS dance professor Linda Goodrich characterizes the eight pieces in the show as a family reunion featuring performances from company members past and present.

The dances range from 1993’s Ancestral Memories, S/BAD’s “signature” piece from its first season, to the premier of Part 1, a work praising dancer Gregory Hines. Other artists honored in the show are dance legend Katherine Duhnam, singer Nina Simone and choreographer Leon Jackson. “In the African tradition, you give praise and thanks to your ancestors, “ says Goodrich. “These are people we have strong affiliations with.”

S/BAD’s potential future will also be on display in the performance. Three company apprentices will make their on-stage debut in Nina’s Love, one of the two pieces dedicated to Simone.

Tickets – $15 general, $13 students and seniors, $12 CSUS students and $9 ages 12 and under – are available from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at Media assistance is available from public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
