Dance for Social Justice™
The Dance for Social Justice (DSJ) practice explores the universal language of movement to generate relevant conversations around social injustice in our communities. Participants work in groups, exchange ideas, and engage in a carefully guided dance-making process to address major issues in their communities. The workshop concludes with an informal showing of their creations, and a Q&A session.
DSJ is open to youth, teens, and adults of all experience levels. Workshop space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Who Created the Model?
The Dance for Social Justice curriculum grew out of Marsha Parrilla’s experience teaching dance and bilingual education in urban settings. Marsha has worked as an educator in New York City and Boston since 1998, and has a Masters degree in Dance Education from New York University. The DSJ curriculum is informed by Paulo Freire’s education philosophy as expressed in Pedagogy of the Oppressed. The workshop is accesible to all populations, and it can be modified to multiple age groups.
