MoveMEANT: Identity & Resilience

  • The Hub at Ward Village 1200 Ala Moana Blvd Honolulu, HI 96814 (map)


Presented by Dancers Unlimited, MoveMEANT: Identity & Resilience engages the community through panel discussions and dance workshops to explore the role of traditional and contemporary dances as tools of strengthening cultural identities and promoting resilience.

We're hoping to create exchanges between cultural groups that have fought against oppression through creating dance steps or continuing traditional dance practices. The exchanges include a panel discussion and cross-cultural dance / movement classes including Hula, Hip Hop / House, West African Dance, Capoeira and Folkloric Cuban* dances.

The panel discussion is designed for participants in high school or older.

The dance workshops are open to all levels and abilities - observers welcome.

This event is free but RSVP is required.
