‘Break Every Chain’ to come to J.B. Kelly in honor of Black History Month

J.B. Kelly students will perform ‘Break Every Chain’ this Friday in honor of Black History Month.

Seventeen students who have taken lessons in African dance, modern dance, spiritual dance, public speaking and drama have come together for the show. 

At the helm is local director Lisa Hopkins, who says the show aims to “spread a message through dance to break the chains of violence, poverty, ignorance, hatred and racial profiling.”

There will be two performances of ‘Break Every Chain’ on Friday, Feb. 27. At 1 p.m. the group will perform mainly for the students and staff of the school.

A show at 4 p.m. is open to the general public. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. 

Take a look through the gallery for a sneak-peek of the program from a dress rehearsal held last week.
