Sekou McMiller Dance Company is an innovative New York-based contemporary Afro-Latin dance theater company founded in 2008 by artistic director Sekou McMiller, an internationally acclaimed choreographer whose credits range from off-Broadway, film and television, to performing and choreographing top Latin and pop artists including Madonna. The company fuses Afro Latin dance and music with contemporary, urban, classical and abstract theater dance to create provocative narratives on socialization and the human experience through its invigorating, interactive dance and music performances. As part of the CUNY Dance Initiative, the Company presents a preview of a new work “I am Pulse: Afro Latin Jazz and Soul experience" with a talkback with the artists following.


The CUNY Dance Initiative receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York Community Trust and the Howard Gilman Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation and the Harkness Foundation for Dance. CDI is spearheaded and administered by The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.
