About This Campaign

Tuesday, May 18th, 10 am to 11:30 am
Class instructor: Shawny Evans / Humlao

Class Description:
Dialogues from the Diaspora engages in contemporary cultural arts practices, landscape acknowledgement, and meaningful relationship building within ourselves as well as our community. This open sharing of cultural artistic work intends to honor and explore solidarity within a global indigenous and nationalistic diversity context. The process amplifies the body mind spirit connectivity, and offers modes to cope with historic and present-day trauma through creative renewal. Through embodying respect, reciprocity, relationship, and responsibility we can find shared grounding. Harnessing the freedom of strong internal and external relationships through ritualistic movement meditations with bioethical themes, we will continue to move collectively towards remembering, reimagining, renewal, revitalization, and regeneration of our future.

Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning. Spanning multiple disciplines, morning class is led by a variety of teachers and provides a space for growth, conditioning, and exploration. Take a class with the company, and learn from Atlanta's best.

Campaign to Support Core Dance

For four decades, Core Dance has supported innovation, collaboration, artistic risk-taking and sustainable art-making in dance. An award-winning contemporary dance organization with global reach, Core Dance creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation with the community. In 1980, Core Dance was co-founded in Houston, Texas by dancer and choreographer Sue Schroeder and her sister, Kathy Russell.  Five years later, the organization added Atlanta, Georgia as a second home base, creating a platform for dance that is relevant in both cities and around the globe. Core Dance uses dance to educate, question and illuminate, and is internationally recognized for its artistically driven research practices, cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary collaborations, the humanity of the individual Dance Artists, and its rigorous physicality.
