Dancing Protests - June 2020
Hi fellow dancers, dance enthusiasts, dance scholars, and dance lovers who are protesting or bearing witness~

I’m compiling this list of dance and protest during the moment of current uprisings in response to the recent police murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and the larger #BlackLivesMatter anti-racism movement. To be specific, I'm collating instances of dances-as-protest, the choreography of protests (die-ins, taking a knee, etc), and other bodily movement as protest (yoga/meditation) since the first protest began in MN on 5/26/20.

This is a crowd-sourced list that is open and available to any and all who would like to reference it for scholarship, or examples of how other organizers are protesting with dance. Feel free to take a look and see if your video/reading is already up:
