Dance Program Hosts Diversity and Inclusivity Workshop
On the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, the Seattle Academy Dance Department hosted their third annual Diversity & Inclusivity Workshop. The weekend kicked off with a panel discussion of professional artists, dancers, and choreographers of color. The workshop provided SAAS students the opportunity to dialogue with artists and learn a variety of different dance techniques, which included Mexican Folklorico, Afro-Modern, Urban Hip Hop, Heels, and House Dance.
This year’s guest artists included:
- Randy Ford, a Seattle-born Queer Black Non binary Trans Femme Contemporary Dance Artist
- DJ Baluyot, a San Jose native and Filipino-American dancer and teacher
- Noelle Price, an African-American classically trained dancer, choreographer, and activist from Detroit
