Brownbody will be activating the space by offering mini lessons and previewing a bit of artistic work. In the first 45 minutes, Brownbody instructors will offer a 15 minute mini lesson covering the basics of skating followed by 30 minutes of free skate time with the Brownbody team. This will be followed by a short presentation of artistic works presented and choreographed by Brownbody artists, apprentices,and Brownbody Founder and Artistic/Executive director Deneane Richburg. The presentation will be followed by another mini lesson and more free skate time.
Grounded in African diasporic perspectives, Brownbody’s mission is to build artistic experiences that disrupt biased narratives and prompt audiences to engage as active participants in the journey. Brownbody accomplishes this through a blend of modern dance, theater, social justice, and figure skating. Learn more about their work at www.brownbody.org.
