Dancesequences Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was formed in Fall 2017 with the mission to advance societal inclusion through dance. The arts can provide meaningful experiences of joy, awareness, cooperation, growth and learning. The art of dance is a key way human beings communicate and connect with one another through movement expressions. Through community engagement residencies and community sharings, the Dancesequences Repertory Company and affiliated guest artists seek to (i) provide accessible opportunities for individuals to share personal stories and experiences; (ii) to encourage the interchange of dialogue to interpret, enhance and celebrate our common humanity through dance.
Our “Joyful Movement” residency at Sister Jose Women’s Center is now part of the center’s empowerment program, CREATE, and will continue through 2018. We have ongoing and exciting new projects in collaboration with a diverse group of artists and organizations, including Satori School and the Tucson Museum of Art. Our international residency in Vietnam and Indonesia in July 2018 enabled us to share creative dance with incredible and diverse community groups. We continue to collaborate with multiple local agencies on workshop specifics as part of our mission to encourage open access, inclusive dance. As a friend recently expressed so beautifully: “when we interact vulnerably, there is the possibility for deeper communication and understanding. And that’s a good thing, even if it feels scary when we are doing it.”
