Aileen LeBlanc of member station WYSO reports on two concurrent exhibitions at two different Ohio museums that celebrate African-American dance. Together they try to capture the influence that African movement has had on American dance. One explores the work of various contemporary artists; the other is a more conventional exploration of the history of dance in America. The concurrent exhibitions are called, "When the Spirit Moves."
