Event description

Description

This workshop, led by Shamell Bell, provides foundational tools for the use of street dance as a form of radical joy, healing, resistance, and team building. Dancers will learn basic hip-hop/street dance moves, but will also engage in team-building activities as they break into dance battle/community organizing groups to close out the workshop in joy, love, and unity. This ceremony closes a transformative event of artivism with the pillars of spiritual guidance, meditation, and dance. With the conclusion of powerful work centered on social justice, it is vital to acknowledge what has been accomplished, to celebrate it, and to release it in order to rise another day. In that regard, this short closing ceremony will be facilitated to give thanks to Spirit, the ancestors, the land, the elements, and the four directions for holding sacred space; we will also acknowledge one another for the work that we put in collectively to create this experience for the community. Finally, we will be given words of encouragement for how to move forward from a place of greater optimism and resolve to create a world of radical joy and social change.
