This year’s theme is RESILIENCE.

Through times of adversity and even violence, humans create. The innate urge to dance in order to heal, remember, move forward, and make change connects us and can inspire us.

The conference has two parts:

The experiential workshop, co-presented by FREE BODY PROJECT and Gibney Dance, is an exploration of three movement methodologies from thought leaders in the field of dance and social justice. The workshop offers a rare opportunity to engage with unique approaches to movement, resilience and positive change while connecting with your body and building your own internal resilience. 

 

The Speaker Series is an interactive platform for sharing the work, approaches, experiences and stories of dancers and change makers moving for a better world. Our inspiring guest speakers will tell stories of resilience through the lenses of their impactful work. 

We pay it forward. 

10% of proceeds will be donated to Kolkata Sanved, a nonprofit in India using dance and dance therapy as healing and empowerment for survivors of human trafficking and violence. Kolkata Sanved is FREE BODY PROJECT’S current partner in the creation of an awareness raising dance + documentary film.
