Hold on to your hats, and get your second-line umbrellas ready for the New Orleans premiere of Takin It to the Roots, a new, exhilarating dance performance work by Michelle N. Gibson.  Displaced by Hurricane Katrina, Gibson is homegrown. Although she is now living in Dallas, she hails from the Algiers and Uptown areas of New Orleans. So it comes as no surprise that Takin It to the Roots is steeped in her New Orleans African American experience.
