Meet the fabulous and talented group, Black Dance Repertoire.
These girls take on the definition of DIVAS on Binghamton’s campus. Why? Because not only are they great performers they’re also women who strive to help out Binghamton’s community with their talent.
Black Dance Repertoire was founded in 1985 by four women with a vision of bringing the art of black dance to the university. BDR is a multi-racial ethnic dance group that performs different genres of dance. Some of these genres include Hip-Hop, Jazz, African, Latin, and Modern. They perform in different events hosted by campus organizations – this year they’ve performed for Culture Shock, J.U.M.P’s banquet, and B.L.A.C.K Unity’s hair show.
These performances kicked butt and showed off once again that BDR’s purpose continues to be to entertain the campus community while showing off dance in all its forms.
The work doesn’t end on campus.
These girls are also involved within the Binghamton community. One activity I had a pleasure to witness was BDR, assisting Binghamton High school in a dance event.
BDR is one of those groups at BU with a motivated group of girls that can not only dance extremely well but are also assisting the community through their talents. And they have created a tight knit community of their own as well.
“BDR is more than just a dance team it’s a family,” Ambre Avery said about the group.
The Black Dance Repertoire's annual dance exhibition, EXPOSE', is a show that features not only the dance creations of the organization but a host of talent and will be in the spring semester.
