The Harlem Renaissance Comes to Life for Columbus Elementary School Students

After a long career as a dance teacher and choreographer, last year I wrote my first script for a stage performance, commissioned for the dance outreach group Momentum in Columbus, Ohio.

It was great to conceptualize the program, entitled “The Harlem Renaissance: Teach Them to Dream” with my former coworker Janine Lawson, and even better to see the students perform the show!

Now it’s gone one step further, as the program was selected as a winner in the Columbus Makes Art Awards sponsored by Engie and L Brands Foundation. The award was presented to Momentum as an arts organization that has demonstrated innovation, risk, and artistic excellence in a performance, exhibition, or program.

You can find a link to the performance here!
