Meg Brooker's project DANCING FOR SUFFRAGE: RECONSTRUCTING FLORENCE FLEMING NOYES'S DANCE OF FREEDOM offers dance educators an opportunity to explore a historic choreography, with a social activist theme, and to initiate dialogue with students about voting rights and embodied experiences of oppression. This dance opens conversations about racism in the women's suffrage movement and creates a space for dancers to explore their own, contemporary movement responses to the themes in the dance. In creating this reconstruction, Meg draws on her background as a certified teacher of Noyes Rhythm, with nearly two decades of kinesthetic research into early modern dance practices. This project and the accompanying materials are designed to be adaptable for K-12 and university dance populations. Link to the educational resource:
