Educational Residency, January 29 - February 14, 2020 

Victoria Lynn Awkward and Yasiri Sanders led workshops with 2nd - 5th graders on self-advocacy through dance, that culminated in a dance piece (inspired by Alvin Ailey). The mission of VLA DANCE is to create empowering and thought provoking work through rigorous contemporary dance. Within the company we focus on how we can use dance as a form of self-empowerment. The amazing choreographers like Alvin Ailey and Nick Cave inspire our work and we shared a little of our process with the Atrium students.
