Urban Bush Women, Matt Langlois
Be a change-maker through dance! Engage in the power of dance and live performance to inspire, speak, transform, and build community. With
Urban Bush Women you will create an engaged community of artists and dancers supported by an original sound score, and collaborate to create live performance through embodied expression that honors one’s identity and lived experience.
Students that are invested in dance and the arts as a social justice process and want to create in community. This course is for intermediate and advanced dancers. Non-dancers who are interested in movement as a tool for expression are also welcome.
