The Webinar will present approximately 15 minutes of heretofore unseen footage from the film-in -progress, “Why We Dance”. Originally titled “Why American Men Dance” the full length movie is a collection of excerpted interviews with an intergenerational group of 44 men who have dedicated their lives to dance as performers, choreographers and teachers. Structured as a series of conversations, the artists discuss their early memories of dance, their inspirations, challenges, the support they did or didn’t get and they answer the question, “Why do I dance?”. Following the screening of these short clips, we will invite attendees to ask questions of the filmmaker, Keith Glassman, and offer feedback in an interactive Q&A. The question ‘Why do you dance?’ will be posed to participants so that they have the opportunity to share their personal stories and how their stories are relevant when passing on their experience to others whether in the form of teaching, choreographing, or producing.
