DanceSPEAK

Global DanceSPEAK 2020/21

Global DanceSpeak is a free virtual workshop series that provides a vibrant exchange with Seattle-based artists from a range of art practices.

Open to youth ages 10-18, participants will explore movement and storytelling in connection to the Race and Climate Festival presented by Spectrum Dance Theater.

Through a series of classes facilitated by Alyza DelPan-Monley, students will engage with the digital space using art to express themselves and connect with each other. Together we will explore how to translate each of our unique movement expressions into the virtual format.

Through creative activities centering on the theme of Race and Climate Change, we will see how art is and can be an essential part of our Global Environmental conversation. Join us as we exchange in movement, storytelling, and community.

No prior dance experience required, we welcome students of all levels!

FAQs

Can students still participate if they cannot attend all classes?
Yes! Though we strongly encourage consistent attendance, students should not be discouraged from participating if they cannot attend every class. 

What should students wear?
Any clothes that they feel comfortable moving in. Sweatpants and gym shorts are a great option.
