Community Arts

​Zaman Dance Theatre Collective engages communities through arts workshops, curated events, collaborative projects, and creative problem-solving. 

Our programming focuses on creative expression, collaboration, and social concerns, while increasing arts literacy in community spaces. 

Our educators and artivists facilitate with an approach that is culturally responsive, inclusive, and transformative for diverse communities and groups.

Pop Up
& Dance

Pop Up and Dance cultivates connection through movement in shared spaces. Pop Up & Dance workshops are ideal for community events, festivals, cultural celebrations, or simply to build community. They are intended to be inclusive and intergenerational. 

Workshop Offerings: Jazz Dance, Social Dances, West African Dance, Hip Hop, and Latin Dances. We can also create original workshops (indoors or outdoors) that connect to your event theme. 

*Book a single workshop or a series of workshops for a full day.

My Dancing Self: A Movement Workshop Exploring Identity

This workshop series is geared toward youth, adolescents, and young adults and provides an outlet for creativity, self-expression, and identity exploration. Participants respond to a series of writing and movement prompts that allow them to reflect on their characteristics, lived experiences, and perspectives. They are then guided through a choreographic process that allows them to create Moving Identity Stories.

 

Workshop activities do not require participants to have previous dance training but encourages them to draw from their own movement vocabularies and interests.

Let’s Activate: A Creative Approach to Activism

Let’s Activate is a series of workshops that uses creativity as a means for social activism. Participants identify and explore a socially charged issue in their community and then collaborate to devise performative responses that can be captured by recording or performed live.

 

Art forms integrated may include Dance, Spoken Word, Storytelling, Theatre, Vocal Music, and Instrumental Music.
