Amirah Sackett: Hip-hop Master Class

November 29, 12:30pm - 1:45pm
Mānoa Campus, Dance Building

Join Amirah Sackett of "We're Muslim, Don't Panic" in exploring the movement components of hip-hop culture, including dance styles: top rock, breaking, popping, and tutting. Dress comfortably and be ready to dance! Please bring appropriate footwear--street-worn shoes may not be worn in the dance studio.

Amirah Sackett is an internationally recognized hip-hop dancer, choreographer, and teacher. Amirah is the founder of the all-female, American Muslim trio, "We're Muslim, Don't Panic,” which in 2016 found viral fame with videos of their performances. Amirah believes hip-hop culture, as a whole, gives voice to those often unheard and is a way to uplift, inspire, and bring change to those communities that need it the most.

Presented by Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design in partnership with the Dance Program at University of Hawai‘i at Manoa.
