Description

Students will learn original routines taught by original Do Dat dancers enriched with stories and lessons from Do Dat members first hand. The conference will include presentations, guest speakers and engaging  conversations that explore post secondary dance programs. Together we’ll question why there isn’t a dedicated Hip Hop Dance class or course?  The conference will also explore careers a nd the business of being in the Arts Industry and much more. This is an amazing opportunity for students to learn Toronto’s rich history of hip hop from the professionals who pioneered this dance genre. Explore the world of dance as a student of York University and to connect with other dancers, share creativity and talents.

To understand the significance of Do Dat Entertainment, you have to look beyond the celebrity milestones and accolades into the impact and legacies that have been sustained since their first performance and the persistent fight against anti-black racism in Toronto during the late 80’s into the 2000’s.

Do Dat Entertainment pioneered Toronto’s unique style of hip hop dance by infusing reggae rhythms, with hip hop dance movement and militant formations inspired by African American step dance. Despite persistent anti-black racism within Toronto’s arts and culture sector during the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Do Dat became the nation’s premiere Black owned and operated dance agency creating movement and providing dancers for artists of all genres. Do Dat is responsible for the blueprint to Canadian professional hip hop dance. The legacies of some of the original foundation members are still prominent in today’s industry. ‘ Their style of choreography and showmanship is still essential to all practitioners of modern hip hop dance.
