DEL Panel: What Has Dance Taught Us About Race? Experiences, Challenges, and Opportunities for Dialogue
Join DEL facilitators and a panel of distinguished guests for a frank conversation on racial experiences in dance and dance education.
What experiences within our personal, social and cultural dance education and professional and artistic pursuits have impacted our beliefs and attitudes about race? What racial challenges have we faced and overcome in dance? What race-related opportunities do we see for ourselves and for the field? Where are we in our understanding of how to address issues of racial oppression in our dance classrooms and performance spaces? Panelists will share their personal stories of dance and race followed by breakout discussions in which participants will be invited to share their race-related experiences and challenges and engage in a collective dialogue on opportunities for dismantling racial inequality in dance and dance education.
This program is taking place remotely. If you have signed up, you will receive an email with details of how to access the program. If we are able to offer an in-person version of this class in the coming months, we will contact you and make both options available to you.
