Evolution Solo Weekend is an annual festival of African-American Dance and Culture held by Jazz Workshop w/Alina Sokulska, Casa Latina Dance Studio and Fedor Nedotko in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The main philosophy of the event embraces exploration of the evolution and artistic development of African-American and Latin American performance arts from its African roots, through the twentieth century up to nowadays. With such social dance artforms as jazz, tap, mambo, Afro-Latin dance, appearing in America throughout 20th century, we make an educative attempt to investigate the performance arts of mixed societies and identities via theory, practice and entertainment, as well as trace its African roots.

The Festival events include dance workshops: traditional African and Afro-Cuban dance, gospel, tap, vernacular jazz, modern jazz, afro-latin, mambo, funk; social dance parties with live music and guest bands; performances by guest giants of jazz and latin dance; educational meetings and lectures which focus on the historical and anthropological Evolution of African-American major dance displays.
