DREAM Students Hear from Black Women in the Arts

On Thursday, February 25, select CityDance DREAM School students were the special guests of faculty member Shanice Mason as she spoke on the panel of The Arts Citizenship Talk (ACTnow): Revelations of Black Women in the Arts, an unfiltered roundtable discussion with extraordinary women sharing their artistry, scholarship, vision and creativity. Hosted by The Clarice and moderated by Ronya-Lee Anderson, the event was part of a series of discussions with Black women scholars, performers, educators and leaders addressing the highs and lows of being a Black female artist in a world ill-equipped to receive and make space for them.

After listening to the rich conversation, students engaged in a post-event dialogue with DREAM School faculty and staff that continues to inspire and energize their artistic training and citizenship.
