LaTasha Barnes is a US Army Veteran (SFC/SATCOM engineer) who worked for 10 years in the Bush and Obama administrations. Injuries from a car accident led her to dance therapy and a deep exploration of social dance styles, with her winning the World Championships in house dancing. Now she is a leader in the Lindy Hop swing dance scene and recognized internationally as a tradition-bearer for Black jazz and social dance and culture. LaTasha Barnes’ The Jazz Continuum will be presented by Celebrity Series on Jan. 19 – 21, 8:00 p.m. at New England Conservatory’s Plimpton Shattuck Black Box Theater with seven dancers and seven musicians.

Celebrity Series will also provide a discounted ticket offer (and limited comps) for Veterans to the Jan. 21, 2023, performance at NEC’s Plimpton Shattuck Black Box. For more information, visit: LaTasha Barnes' The Jazz Continuum | Celebrity Series of Boston
