DMV Artists in Action

DMV Dance Accomplices

AU Anti-racist Working Group

I’m thinking about how I can be part of the revolution. I’m thinking about how I can be a more supportive, move empathetic, better educated, more radical community member in service of my BIPOC colleagues. I’m thinking about how I can de-center my whiteness. I’m thinking about how to decolonize my curricula. And I’m doing this alongside amazing dance artists, educators, administrators, and fellow colleagues here in the DMV. You can, too! Email me to get involved!

Let’s plie, meaning: to bend. Let’s crease a knee, turn a head, look from a different corner, and see things we haven’t considered before.

Let’s leap — beyond systemic structures and into radically reimagined understandings and contexts for dance.

Let’s twist and turn — to look over a shoulder at the past, down the length of your own north star illuminating the future, and toward our classmates at our sides.

Let’s. The time is now.
