More Than Words: An introduction to Dunham Technique, Southern Black Dance Vocabularies, and the work of Bolin Fellow Saroya Corbett

In this workshop, Saroya Corbett, Bolin Fellow of Dance, will share with the Williams community her expertise in Dunham Technique, an Afro-modern dance technique, and her research on Black social dance in Louisiana. As a certified instructor in and a life-long practitioner of Dunham Technique, Saroya will discuss the importance of the Dunham technique model in her work as an educator, a scholar, and a human. Additionally, Saroya will explore her research on dance teams and bounce as she dissects the cultural and embodied meaning behind these practices. During this experience, Saroya will combine her work and scholarship with the embodied experience. Therefore, participants should be prepared to learn and engage in a Dunham Technique dance class.

*Note participation in the dance class is optional.

RSVP required. Please email Saroya Corbett
