From Baltimore to Senegal, Sanchel Brown’s new evening-length dance journey is a reminder that home is always beneath the feet.

In Home to Homeland, choreographer Sanchel Brown, dances, sings, raps, and raises an eyebrow as she travels from 1920’s Harlem to contemporary day time television.

Brown weaves common yet diverse movement languages of footwork, as she invites us to follow her footprints towards the meaning of Motherland. Home to Homeland includes stopssmack dab in the middle of a New Orleans second line as well as the Baltimore of Brown’s childhood.

Brown is a performer/choreographer/actress originally from Baltimore, MD. She obtained her B.F.A from Virginia Commonwealth University, extensively studying the movement of the African Diaspora in Senegal, West Africa under the direction of Germaine Acogny at L’Ecole De Sable. Most recently, she studied commercial Hip Hop Dance under the direction of Rhapsody James in Los Angeles, CA. Her performance highlight includes World of Dance Philadelphia 2018 (choreographer/performer), The Kimmel Center’s 2018 Jazz residency (choreographer/soloist), Let ‘Im Move You: This is a Formation (Performer), Urban Bush Women (Apprentice), and Theatre Horizon’s Black Nativity (Barrymore Win!). Her choreography highlights include Theatre Horizon’s “The Color Purple” Regional PREMIERE, Yale Dramat’s “Dreamgirls”, and her self -produced show “Ode to Black Wombman” (National Tour). Sanchel currently teaches her original “Bmore Afro” class fusing Baltimore House and West African Dance Forms every week in NYC (Cumbe Center for Diasporic Dance) and Philadelphia (Urban Movement Arts). Her teaching highlights also include Yale University, Princeton University, Dancing Grounds, Drexel University, and University of The Arts.
