Meet the 2015-16 Dancing While Black Fellows

The Dancing While Black Fellowship brings together eight emerging Black choreographers who have invested in and supported the Dancing While Black community since the initiative began in 2012. These artists are looking to push their personal and artistic boundaries while interrogating the boundaries of dance. They will spend six months engaged in a collective developmental process that includes workshops with seasoned artists Onye Ozuzu, Jawole Zollar and Ishmael Houston-Jones. The fellowship culminates in a work-in-progress showing at BAX in March of 2016.
