Dance Studio, Schwartz Center for Performing Arts

This workshop is a two hour interactive session that will explore and introduce an appreciative approach to recovery, transformation, and cultural competence through movement and dialogue. We will review core principles, practice key skills, and identify one action each participant can do to be more culturally agile in approaching recovery.

The Emory Dance and Movement Studies program is a collaborative environment, a place for improvisation, critical thinking, analysis, and risk taking. We value individualism, innovation, and interdisciplinary approaches to learning and dance making. We develop skilled and uniquely expressive individuals who move and act with intelligence and sensitivity, think independently, and value original thought and diversity.
