We have created new ways to connect through art in times of physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through virtual classes, rehearsals, and one-on-one therapy sessions we are creating material for our 2020 CREATE Performing Group performance, Home within a Home, a transparent look at our experiences during this unprecedented time.
In addition, alumni of the CREATE Performing Group are creating material for a new film series Portraits of Space. Portraits of Home.
We acknowledge and affirm that transcenDANCE has an important role to play in the dismantling of white supremacy and institutional racism. A key component of our work is social justice. We work with youth and young people from multiple identities to expand and nurture their analytic sensibilities, creativity, self-reflection, and critical thinking skills to engage them in the work of fighting for visibility, inclusion, and intersectional justice. We promote and supporting youth culture as a mechanism to drive youths’ understanding of and ability to challenge racial violence, and structural and systemic oppression.
