DEL Dance to Belong: An Embodied Dance History of 92NY
In this in-person, embodied dance history course, participants will engage with 92NY’s exhibit, Dance to Belong: A History of Dance at 92NY, which explores 92NY’s historical importance as a sanctuary space in which dance history was made.
Course participants will learn about the immigrants, BIPOC, and Jewish dance artists who made 92NY home from 1874 to 2024, including pillars of American dance history like Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham, Anna Sokolow, Jose Limón, Pearl Primus, and many more.
Through culturally responsive and inquiry-based learning, this course will include engagement with archival resources, collaborative dance making opportunities, individual and group reflection, and lesson planning activities. Dance educators will leave with a deeper understanding of 92NY dance history to bring back to their students.
Must register by Wednesday, July 10, 2024.
Course scholarships and discounts are available! Learn more about scholarship opportunities here.
