DANCE FOR EVERY BODY: MOVEMENT WORKSHOP
This movement jam/dance class embraces the ideas that each individual has a unique and powerful contribution to make, and that our bodies are a powerful source of agency. The goal is for "every body" to find their level of challenge and comfort and partake according to their abilities, and to appreciate the groups’ diversity as an attribute to their community. This is a movement class designed for the community so no prior dance experience is needed. Participants explore UBW's technique with close attention to the use of breath, weight, call and response and polyrhythm.
Urban Bush Women; Bold-Builders, Organizers, and Leaders Through Dance
Founded in 1984 by choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Urban Bush Women (UBW) seeks to bring the untold and under-told stories to light through dance, under the artistic direction of Chanon Judson and Mame Diarra Speis (UBW Co-Artistic Directors). We do this from a woman-centered perspective and as members of the African Diaspora community in order to create a more equitable balance of power in the dance world and beyond.
Urban Bush Women (UBW) galvanizes artists, activists, audiences and communities through performances, artist development, education and community engagement.
