Disrupting Gender Assumptions: Challenging Cis-Heteronormative Narratives in Dance
Presented by: Anthony Alterio, Barbie Diewald, Ari Calvano, and Natalie Swan
Moderated by: Vanessa Kanamoto and McKenzie Day
With Special Consideration from Lindsey Bauer
In this webinar our esteemed panel of presenters will discuss their experiences as LGBTQIA+ identifying educators/artists and how they work to disrupt assumptions in their respective dance spaces. These panelists come from a range of backgrounds and will speak to different experiences based on their specific work environment. Topics covered in this webinar include; anatomy-first language, creating inclusive dance spaces and protocols for all dancers, challenging norms in the casting/audition process, and utilizing inclusive pedagogy throughout the learning process, in both K-12 and University settings. They will each share their perspectives and highlight work that is already being done in the field to address these contemporary issues. There will be a brief Q&A at the end to answer any questions submitted by the audience!
