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.
Dancing While Black
DANCING WHILE BLACK is an artist-led initiative that supports the diverse work of Black dance artists by cultivating platforms for process, performance, dialogue and documentation. We bring the voices of black dance artists from the periphery to the center, providing opportunities to self-determine the languages and lenses that define their work.
After three years of collaborating with so many phenomenal Black dance artists and partner organizations, we are excited about additional support from the Surdna Foundation and Engaging Dance Audiences will allow us to deepen our work and broaden our reach with three initiatives.
