ABOUT The 5th BIANNUAL CADD CONFERENCEThe Collegium for African Diaspora Dance (CADD) fifth bi-annual conference aims to provoke enlivened discussions on the power and politics of global Black Dance by bringing together scholars, practitioners, educators, and other stakeholders for three days of intellectual and artistic inspiration.
As we can, in person and virtually, we gather to Dance Black Together . What does our coming together reveal? What is in our assembly for carnival, for the Black parades, for protest? How do we care for each other in our dancing together, in homes and streets, on stages and screens? What sorts of rhythms call us toward collective action? How do we contemplate, while being together in motion?
Anchored by critical dialogue and provocative research presentations, the 2022 CADD conference theme dancingBLACKtogether will feature breakout sessions, movement workshops, and film screenings. The convening seeks to center our participation as Africans in diaspora in dance as a resource and method of creative and aesthetic possibility.
The conference officially commences with an opening invocation and plenary at 1pm on Friday February 21 and concludes on Sunday February 21 with lunch.
The conference will be held in Duke's Rubenstein Arts Center ("The Ruby"). Conference registration includes all conference presentations, performances, parties, five meals and intra-conference transportation.

Our virtual option will include highlights of the in-person gathering, including live streaming (EST) of keynote addresses and other special events, in addition to the selected (virtual) presentations.
The Collegium for African Diaspora Dance (CADD) is an egalitarian community of scholars and artists committed to exploring, promoting, and engaging African diaspora dance as a resource and method of aesthetic identity. Through conferences, roundtables, publications and public events, we aim to facilitate interdisciplinary inquiry that captures the variety of topics, approaches, and methods that might constitute Black Dance Studies. A diverse gathering of dance scholars and community members, The Collegium for African Diaspora Dance was conceptualized by its founding members and first convened in April 2012 as the African Diaspora Dance Research Group at Duke University.
