Teen artists took body conditioning with @leahsmileytubbs and challenged themselves to think outside the box! Together we created a community poem and began thinking about art making as something “simple”! Special shout out to the REDi Dance team for leading today’s adventures
Feeling the House vibes! Post master class with @dorrenmogliinuu on day 2 of the Dance Bridge Workshop! The entire room was super grateful and lifted.
Students learned REDi Dance Company repertoire and discussed how art can be used to bring communities together.
Flocking during morning ritual, Afrobeats with @march_movements for master class, and final staging at the end of the day. Students were pumped to set their dances for the final sharing!
Show day! Day 5 couldn’t be more rewarding. Not only did students take Modern dance with the amazing @i_candance but students got the opportunity rehearse and reflect on the original dance piece that was created in only a few days. The piece was choreographed by the students and directed by REDi Dance!
Students got the opportunity to perform for family, friends and community members at Lehman College's Student Experimental Theatre. The last day is always thrilling!

Dance Bridge introduces participants to theatre games, writing assignments, and discussion topics that inspire new ways of dancing and connecting.
Day 1: Participants talked/danced about the idea of "Creating Space to Build" and how we can set the stage for growth. What are the barriers that stop us from reaching our maximum and what do they look like? What do they sound like? How can we mold a wall into a stairway?
Day 2: Participants created choreography about getting past our own barriers and meeting others where we are to heal and to "Build Together."
Students trained in Salsa On2, Hip Hop, and Afro-Modern. Special thanks to Master Class instructors: Candace Tabbs, Roberto Parris, and Raymond Falcon.
Students performed original choreography at Lehman College after three days of dancing and building as a community. The community supporters and family members were thrilled to see the young artists dance about the things that matter most to them.
