Spring 2021 Artist Talks

Artistry. Identity. Advocacy. 

“Artists have a really bad habit of being resilient.” --Toni Morrison

Choreographers and dancers are problem-solvers. They move through crises rather than around them. Join us this spring for community gatherings with Harvard Dance Center’s exceptional teaching artists in a series of artist-led dialogues that explore how artistry, identity, and advocacy take shape in turbulent times.
