CDEA Diversity Dialogues: Opening the Door of Opportunity for Dancers of Color A YouTube Live/Google Hangout Event
June 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
“Why isn’t there more diversity in dance? Where are all the dancers of color?”
These questions have been pondered in many professional/educational settings and contexts, however the answers to these questions are complex and varied. This live stream chat hosted by the California Dance Education Association will discuss the challenges faced by dancers of color, identify the challenges of teaching dance in communities of color and identify tangible ways the dance community can increase the racial diversity in all dance settings.
