“Dancing Our Stories”
How does storytelling help us understand who we are in the world? How can we establish our own voice or sense of place as it connects to our immediate communities?
“Dancing Our Stories,” seeks to use dance and filmmaking as a way of empowering young people, giving them the power to tell their own stories and connect with others’ histories and identities. During the Fall of 2017, this collaborative project between Greensboro Dance Film Festival, North Carolina Dance Festival, and Morehead Elementary introduced 5th grade students to the language of dance on film as a way to articulate their own identities.
