Why do I dance? Dance is my medicine. It’s the scream which eases for a while the terrible frustration common to all human beings who because of race, creed, or color, are ‘invisible’. Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice.” … Pearl Primus

This course uses the words of Pearl Primus as an impetus to respond to, envision, and create a better world. Dance is utilized as a vehicle of connection and change as we work collectively for an embodied empathy and liberation. Through movement we work to dismantle prejudice in an acknowledgement of our shared humanity. We aim to journey together as artivists who inspire change through our artmaking. This course centers movement as a modality for expression and a fight for freedom.

This weekend workshop is designed to give dance educators the tools to build an anti-racist classroom.

In this workshop teachers will be asked to consider their own intersectional identities, biases (implicit and explicit), and methods to support all students in anti-racist education. Understanding that both reflection and action are integral to growth in this area, participants will have the opportunity to think through challenging scenarios, and develop tools for action. Throughout this weekend professional development, teachers will work collaboratively to create a new and improved paradigm for anti-racist dance education.

DATES AND TIMES: January 9 & 10, 2020 and 2:00 – 5:00 EST
