IDE "The Dancer Hat" Class
Facilitated by Devin Oshiro Jan. 4th, 3:15pm-4pm
- 19 US dollars$19
- North Pennsylvania Street
Price includes $1 credit card processing fee. As dancers, we wear many hats to "make it" into the dance field. Though our artistry and creativity are often undervalued and underpaid, we each have unique strengths, such as resourcefulness, problem-solving, and adaptability, that can apply to our everyday lives. What we do is essential, and even if society doesn't see it, how do we make this career attainable and more sustainable? In this discussion, we will converse, question, and share ideas about how to sustainably wear this "dancer hat," especially since one size doesn't fit all. This conversation stems from my Gibney fellowship and research in producing the Dancers' Economic Empowerment Program (2016-2020). This program offered a series of professional development courses led by artists in the dance field to address the issues dancers face. Other content and source inspirations for this discussion include Making Your Life as An Artist by Andrew Simonet, The Entertainment Community Fund (formerly the Actors' Fund), career counselor Patch Schwadron, and Dance Artists National Collective (DANC).
Weekly classes may be cancelled 1 hour before the start time of the class. Workshops must be cancelled at least 1 week in advance.
