We focus on the following topics to achieve this goal: being responsible and respectful guests of Black dance forms (e.g., Hip-Hop, Jazz), educating our students on the history and culture of dance forms from around the world, addressing implicit and explicit biases (e.g., sizeism/fatphobia), and many more!
