Urban Jazz Dance Company is a convergence of artistic forces where RAW energy, ROOTED in FREEDOM, is expressed through the athletic BODY and UNCONTROLLABLE, PASSIONATE dance. The company's MISSION is to show the world that no matter who you are, your dreams are possible.
Thank you for supporting this Black Deaf-led Business.
Led by Director Antoine Hunter, a multiply marginalized person of BIPOC descent, UJDC engages in advocacy and social change through performance, panels, lectures, education and community engagement.
As California’s only Black Deaf-led professional dance company, UJDC changes each place it touches, embodying the emergent social justice movement #IntersectionalityAccessArts to bring diversity/inclusion awareness to the arts worldwide, uplift the voices, leadership and experiences of the most marginalized artists.
Hunter has established an essential platform for the Black Deaf, DeafPOC and general Deaf communities. Directly impacted by oppression across intersections of race, ability, and gender, UJDC prioritizes access and counters this isolation with Deaf agency and representation, uplift our most impacted artists (Deaf, queer, trans, disabled, immigrant, female, and BIPOC identities).
