MBDance Goes to High School

This week, we are holding a lecture-demonstration for Vanguard High School based on 50 Ways to Say...
While always a pleasure to dance in theater settings, our goal with 50 Ways to Say…is to use the piece as a popular education tool, sharing excerpts from this work on racialized police brutality as a springboard for consciousness-raising & community-building in various settings.
We look forward to talking with the intelligent young people at Vanguard about their own bodies, and about how they can fortify themselves with both pride & awareness of the race construct here in the U.S.
